Britain's Got Talent gave us eye candy and fab tunes all in one package thanks to Loveable Rogues, and thankfully Simon Cowell was won over too.

Simon Cowell has signed BGT finalists Loveable Rogues on a one-album deal worth £500,000.

Sonny Jay gave us a hint that big news was afoot last night when he tweeted from the band's account: "Keep an eye out for us in the papers tomorrow ;) — Sonny"

Essex's Eddie Brett, Sonny Jay and Te Eugene got our vote thanks to their self-penned son 'Lovesick'.

Although they missed out on the big Britain's Got Talent prize, they're already in the studio and their debut single should be out later this year. Woop.

Eddie told the Sun: "We're buzzing. This is everything we've been working towards. We are so happy."

Sonny added: "Syco is a fresh label working with some great acts."

Loveable Rogues won The Jack Wills Unsigned Competition 2010 and have been gigging around the country, but it was thanks to Britain's Got Talent that they got their massive break.

They're the first BGT band to be signed to Syco, so Simon Cowell must be mega impressed.

We can't wait for Loveable Rogues to release their music and hit the road.
