Having signed record deals with Simon Cowell's Syco, as well as Colombia in the US, it's fair to say that being runner up on the reality show in 2010 has done little to stop her reaching the top.
Released in 2011, her debut album Heaven was successful commercially and critically. Having sold over 128,000 copies in the first week, it made her the fastest charting debut solo artists in the last decade. Her soulful voice has earned her a plethora of chart positions and award nominations, including multiple categories at the MOBOs, and Glamour Woman of the Year.
Ferguson has confirmed she is working on her highly anticipated new album, the release date of which is set to be confirmed later this year.
