Britain's Got Talent: Jonathan & Charlotte tipped to score number one album

Britain's Got Talent - Jonathan and Charlotte

Britain's Got Talent 2012 stars Jonathan and Charlotte have been tipped to score a number one debut album later this year.

Simon Cowell and his record company Syco confirmed this week that the pair had been signed, with plans to have a record out by September.

Jonathan Antoine said: "Appearing on the show has been a huge confidence boost and I'm still pinching myself that we are actually making our album."

Simon Cowell commented: "This show is designed to give people like Jonathan & Charlotte an opportunity."

Despite losing out in the final to Ashleigh and Pudsey, bookies have made Jonathan & Charlotte odds of just 4/6 that their d├ębut album storms to the top of the charts.

The pair are also chalked up at just even money to notch up a number one single this year as well as being installed as the early 10/1 favourites for the elusive Christmas top spot.

However there's a 33/1 chance they suffer the same fate as 2011 winner Jai McDowell and are dropped by SyCo before the year's out.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "They might be the runner-up but Charlotte and Jonathan may have the last laugh as they look set to conquer the charts."
