Fans of Reggie ‘N’ Bollie have been dealt a bit of good news - it turns out they could have a shot at making it in the music industry, regardless of whether they win in Sunday night’s ‘X Factor’ final.
The singing duo are one of just two acts remaining in this year’s ‘X Factor’, and will battle it out against Louisa Johnson in Sunday’s live show at Wembley Arena.

But while Louisa has long been a hot favourite to succeed Ben Haenow as this year’s champion, it turns out the pair may be given a second chance at success, thanks to their mentor, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
Cheryl has previously spoken about how Simon Cowell has repeatedly offered her an imprint on his Syco record label, which she ha admitted she’d be keen to take him up on, after working with Reggie ‘N’ Bollie.
She said, as reported in The Mirror: “There’s no chance I’m letting these boys out of my fingers. They aren’t getting away.
“Simon has offered me a label for years but this would be a good act to start with. I think Simon and I need to sit down and have some serious conversations about it.”
Cheryl has clearly grown close to the boys during their time on the show, even joining them on stage for a special performance of ‘Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)’ during the quarter-finals.
If they are signed up by Cheryl, it won’t be the first time that an act has managed to bag a record contract, despite not actually winning ‘The X Factor’.
Just weeks after Ben Haenow’s victory last year, runner-up Fleur East confirmed that Simon Cowell had signed her up to his Syco label, while chart-topping acts Ella Henderson, Cher Lloyd and a little indie act called One Direction are among the ‘X Factor’ stars to hit the number-one spot without actually being voted winner.
Find out whether Louisa or Reggie ‘N’ Bollie are crowned this year’s victory in Sunday night’s ‘X Factor’ results show, airing live at 8pm on ITV.
