Fans of the 19-year-old singer launched the ‘Get Aiden signed’ campaign across Twitter and Facebook, forcing phrases such as ‘sign Aiden now’ and ‘record deal for Aiden’ in to the trending topics every day since December.

The show’s winner Matt Cardle also tweeted his support, saying: “Get Aiden signed!!! Aiden PS.. U know what I did ; )… Love ya bro” (sic).

Now Simon Cowell appears to have taken notice, and has offered Aiden a record deal on the condition he impresses fans on the upcoming X Factor tour.

A source has said: “This record deal is Aiden’s to lose.

“If he can keep the fans happy he’ll join his mate Matt Cardle as one of Simon Cowell’s chosen few.”

Former show contestants Cher Lloyd, One Direction and Rebecca Ferguson are all reported to have recently signed record deals with Cowell.
