Future looks bright for X Factor runner-up Rebecca Ferguson as she goes house-hunting in Liverpool


Cat's got the cream: A smiling Rebecca Ferguson visits an estate agent in her native Liverpool this afternoon

She may have been the runner-up in this year's X Factor, but the future is certainly looking bright for Rebecca Ferguson.

Amidst reports she is set to sign a record deal with Simon Cowell, the mother-of-two was spotted house-hunting in her native Liverpool today.

Looking thrilled to be back home in Merseyside, the stylish singer, 24, beamed with happiness as she popped into a local estate agent.

Wearing a hat, fluffy coat and a pair of jeggings, Ferguson was joined by her younger brother Sam, 21, as she picked up some sales leaflets of a few properties in the Allerton suburb of Liverpool.

The singer told the Liverpool Echo she was hoping to find a 'nice house' for her and her children Lillie May, six, and Karl, four.

While Ferguson and Cowell are declining to confirm reports of a deal between them, her house-hunting suggests a big payday is looming.

Earlier this week, she told the Echo: 'I have a day meeting with management. I imagine there will be interest and I will find out about contracts.

'It would be amazing to record my own album. I like to write my own songs.'

Speaking this week, Cowell said: 'I love her and she will have a fantastic career. She's unique and knows her own mind.'

Her mentor Cheryl Cole is equally positive about the singer's future: 'I think the future is bright and this is the start of a life-changing moment for Rebecca. She is an amazing person with a great heart and she deserves to go far.

'She knows what she is and knows what she wants to be and we've seen that over the weeks.'

While Cowell is yet to confirm if he's signed Ferguson, fellow judge Louis Walsh tipped the Scouser to have a 'brilliant recording career'.

Cowell is also said to have offered his boy band One Direction and fourth place singer/rapper Cher Lloyd recording contracts.
