Union J and Ella Henderson become latest X Factor acts to sign record deals

TWO more X Factor acts have signed record deals since their departures from the talent show.

Boyband Union J confirmed this morning that they have signed a deal with Sony records, while Ella Henderson confirmed on the Saturday night show on RTE at the weekend that she has also signed a deal with Sony.

Union J member Jaymi Hensley told Daybreak on ITV this morning: “It's amazing. It's been a crazy week. Obviously when we came out of the show the dream was to get a record deal and we're going to Sony today to sort out all the contracts and stuff. Before Christmas we will have our deal finalised."

Meanwhile Henderson told Brendan O’Connor on Saturday: “I'm just so, so excited to go into a studio and finally do what I've always wanted to do.

“I have already written stuff, but I can't wait to write new stuff because I haven't written all through the period of being on that show and I've experienced so much and so many emotions that I never felt before so, it's gonna be really exciting”, she continued.

“When I was in the show I felt like I was under a lot of pressure... It's a tough one and I am young, so I did feel the pressure a bit, but coming away from it I've just had so many opportunities now”, she said.
