Amelia's been in the studio

Amelia Lily has bagged a recording contract worth £500,000.

The X Factor star has signed a three-album deal with Sony subsidiary Xenomania – a label that’s worked with former judge Cheryl Cole, 28.

Amelia will be the perfect pop star and has fantastic hit-makers who were behind some of The Saturdays‘ and Girls Aloud‘s biggest songs,’ a source tells the Mirror.   

And if the singer’s recent Tweets are anything to go by, she’s already started work on new material. 

On my way to Kent again! Looking forward to another day of writing and recording! Xx,’ Amelia writes.

We can’t wait to hear your tunes, Amelia
