X Factor duo Reggie n Bollie have debuted just inside the Top 30 in this evening's official charts.

The pair finished second on last year's show and went on to sign with Simon Cowell's Syco record label.

Their first track 'New Girl' was released last Friday and tonight charted at Number 26 in the charts based on the week's sales and streams, the Official Charts Company reports.

It's not a bad debut although it's far from the Number 1 the duo were (very optimistically) hoping for.

Bollie told The Official Charts website earlier this week: "A Number 1? Why not?! We hope New Girl takes us to Number 1, but as long as it puts a smile on people’s faces, we’ll be very happy."

Just to have their own music out has been a dream come true for the lads, who said they were on "cloud eleven".

Looking back on the past year, Reggie reflected: "[This time last year] We hadn’t even done The X Factor yet. It’s just so funny, like today I just saw an old post that I made on Facebook talking about finding my way in life, and all of a sudden we are here releasing music.

"Being on X Factor was just such a dream come true and we feel so blessed to have had this opportunity!"

Elsewhere in the charts today, Britain's Got Talent's Calum Scott has stayed in the Top 40 for a 4th week with his cover of Dancing On My Own having now sold over 100,000 copies.

But there is bad news for Eurovision's Joe and Jake who missed making the cut with their song You're Not Alone.

Meanwhile, Reggie n Bollie have released their official music video for New Girl, which you can watch below...
