Britain's Got Talent 2012: Jonathan Antoine, Charlotte Jaconelli to release album in September

Britain's Got Talent - Jonathan and Charlotte

Britain's Got Talent 2012 stars Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli are to release an album in three months.

The pair, who finished second to Ashleigh and Pudsey on this year's competition, have signed a £1 million record contract with Simon Cowell.

Jonathan & Charlotte will have their debut album out on September 3.

“Simon knows that to make money from them he needs to move fast," a source told The Sun today. "Get the first album out as soon as possible before people have moved on.

"September is also a good time as The X Factor will be in its live stages so there is a chance to get them on the show and plug the album.”

Simon commented: "This show is designed to give people like Jonathan and Charlotte an opportunity. Their debut album is going to be stunning.”

Jonathan said: “I’m still pinching myself that we are actually making our own CD.”

Charlotte added: “This is a dream come true for us.”
