What is The X Factor: Celebrity winner’s prize?

The Sun exclusively revealed that Simon is hoping to transform the fortunes of the star by offering a big money deal with his Syco record label and a shot at the Christmas No1 as a prize.

A source said: "[Simon] decided to put a proper record deal with Syco on the table for the winner — with serious money behind it. It’s a proper competition and they want people who can really sing but who are big personalities too."

Traditionally, the winner receives a £1million record deal under Syco Music, while their winning single is usually known to land the Christmas Number 1 spot.

However, Ben Haenow in 2014 was the last to get the coveted as ratings decreased.*
