Britain's Got Talent's sexy Jack Pack signs record deal

2014-09-08 16:00

London - Britain's Got Talent finalists Jack Pack have signed a record deal with Simon Cowell.

The swing quartet amazed judges when they appeared on the ITV talent show earlier this year and they clearly made a good impression with head judge Simon, as he has now signed them to his Syco Music label.

Talking about the band, Simon said: "I love this era of music, it only works if you've got great voices and if you respect the time and Jack Pack win on both counts. I've always wanted to work on this type of record so I am looking forward to us working together".

Jack Pack were hit with controversy in June when it emerged that Adam Diplock - who was in the band's original line-up on the show - faced charges of assault, leading to his departure from the band. Adam has now been replaced by new member Martin McCafferty.

The band said: "It's a dream come true for us to be signing to Syco Music. We'd like to thank Simon Cowell for believing in us and giving us this opportunity. We can't wait to get to work in the studio and try to repay our supporters for the faith they have shown in us."

The quartet is now gearing up for their Rat Pack-inspired debut album which they hope to release next year.
