  Alex already making first single
Updated 06 October 2003, 07.47
Alex will be hoping to be a chart-topper soon
Fame Academy champ Alex Parks is already hard at work, going straight into a studio to make her first single.

The 19-year-old has signed a deal with record company Polydor, reported to be worth about 1m.

But Polydor have said they would have given her a contract even if she lost.

A record company spokesperson said: "We were not too worried who won it to be honest. This girl is such a huge talent that we were always going to sign her."

Newsround was at the Fame Academy for Saturday night's final and after she'd been announced as the winner, we grabbed a word with her.

Alex said: "Hopefully it won't go to my head. I'll surround myself with people who I love and who love me."

Top flat for the winner

As part of the prize for winning Alex gets to live in a posh London flat for a year, and will move in after enjoying a quick break back at home Cornwall.

A spokesperson for the BBC, who made the programme, said Alex would be spending the next few days helping to promote a Fame Academy album.
