Not winning The X Factor isn't always the end of the world for wannabe popstar-types (er hi One Direction and Little Mix); and now last year's runners up Reggie 'N' Bollie have signed a bloody record deal with Syco alongside 2015 champ Louisa Johnson. HOORAY and HOORAH.
Now obviously Louisa nabbed a deal and released her debut single 'Forever Young' straight away, and while we weren't sure what was gonna happen to the rest of 'em Reg 'N' Bolz (literally nobody calls them that) impressed Simon Cowell enough for him to take them on.
Yaaaas. Serve us that summer smash we've been waiting for, boys.
According to this Syco press release thingy announcing the news, the boys said (presumably in unison): "We are so happy to be joining the Syco Music family and releasing our record with them. It is, literally, a dream come true for us to now do what we love for a living.
"We promise to work hard and show you all what Reggie and Bollie are made of. Here's to a fun 2016."
Oh, d'ya know what? We're well chuffed. They just cheer us up and since January's kinda shit this is VERY GOOD NEWS. Shall we watch 'em cover a Christmas song while we wait for the inevitable smash single? Nothing says Christmas quite like January 20th, let's face it.
What d'ya make of that, then? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape or drop a comment in the box below, if that's more your thing. GRACIAS THANK YOU.
