Yes, he might not have won everyone (*cough* anyone *cough*) over, during his dubious time on last year’s ‘X Factor’, but the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ finalist has now revealed that he is now on the roster of Simon’s Syco label.

Speaking to Digital Spy about his future plans, Stevi revealed: “I'm going to Japan to record a single with Syco International, which is Simon's label. So we’ll see about that…”

Before anyone acts too surprised about Simon’s decision to sign up Stevi, let’s not forget that other hit singles the music mogul is responsible for include ‘Teletubbies Say Eh-Oh’ and Mr Blobby’s eponymous Christmas number one single.
