X Factor’s Lucie Jones lands modelling contract

If you thought that you’d seen the last of Lucie Jones then think again, because the Welsh singer has caught the eye of Select Model Management

She may not have had the X Factor, but Lucie Jones has clearly got something, according to Select Model Management.

Oh how we all gasped at the injustice of Lucie Jones’ shock exit from X Factor only a few weeks ago… (Remember that? When Simon picked Jedward over the Welsh warbler?)

Well it seems that even if a career in singing doesn’t work out for the lovely Lucie, she’s destined to be in front of the camera in one way or another – because the 19-year-old has just been signed by Select Model Management.

‘As soon as we saw Lucie, we recognised that she had a great look,’ says Chrissie Castagnetti, co-founder of the agency.

‘As her confidence grew and her personality came through, we knew we wanted to work with her. We’re looking forward to unleashing her great potential.’

And, understandably, Miss Jones is thrilled by the turn of events.

‘It’s been a brilliant year. I was very flattered to even be considered by Select,’ she said in an interview this weekend.

‘I love fashion, I love beauty and I love singing, so to be able to model alongside my music is the best Christmas present ever. I can’t wait to get going next year!’

The stylish songstress is set to shoot her portfolio in January – so we’ll be having our fingers crossed that she gets some big bookings in the New Year.
