X Factor contestant Lucie Jones has been signed up by a top modelling agency.

Chrissie Castagnetti, co-founder of Select agency said they thought Lucie had a "great look".

The 18 year-old, from Wales, is going to do a photo shoot in the new year - and will begin work soon after.

During X Factor, Lucie was mentored by Dannii Minogue. She was a favourite to get to the final - but lost out in week five to John and Edward.

Lucie, 18, is said to be "very flattered" to have been asked to sign to the company.
