Four of Diamonds X Factor

Four Of Diamonds have announced they've signed a record deal to start off 2018.

The X Factor finalists made the live shows in 2016, replacing Brooks Way who were dropped from the competition in the first week.

The four piece are made up of Caroline, Sophia, Yasmin and Lauren and Nicole Scherzinger named them as her favourite girl-group in the competition at their first audition.

Tweeting today (January 1), the girls shared a video with fans announcing their record deal.

"So this happened... 😆 2018 - bring it on!! ♦️ #EXCITED," the talented ladies captioned the clip.

Fans of the girl group were quick to react.

"OMG YES GIRLS!!!! IM SO PROUD OF YOU HERES TO 2018!!! 😬❤️" tweeted one.

"CONGRATS BABES!!!!!!! I'm so proud of you! God knows everything and hard work always pays off! Love you so much!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️" added another.

A third added: "WAIT. THIS IS SO EXCITING!!! Congrats ladies!"

Four Of Diamonds had only been performing together as a group for a few weeks before they initially auditioned for the judges in 2016.

Each of the girls hails from a different part of the UK; Caroline is from London and has been studying Commercial Music at University and Lauren is from Surrey and has been working part-time in a supermarket and teaching dance.

Yasmin from Manchester has been studying a music course and Sophia from Birmingham has been studying Bio-Veterinary Science at University.

On The X Factor, they described their sound as a modern twist on the classic sixties style.

After making it as far as judges' houses, the girls were originally sent home by mentor Louis Walsh.

But they were brought back for the second round of live shows when Brooks Way were cut from the contest.

Four Of Diamonds finished 7th on The X Factor and in 2017 went out on the live tour.
