THE OFFICIAL Fleur hits right note in Jungle
SINGER’S FUTURE FULL OF EASTERN PROMISE
FLEUR East is at the heart of a bidding war by rival record labels.
The singer’s Jungle stint ended last night but it’s been a huge boost to her pop career.
Industry chiefs are said to be “desperate” to sign her up.
A source said: “A number of labels have been in touch with Fleur’s management team to express an interest in signing her. Meetings are being lined up for when she’s back in the UK so she can decide what she wants to take advantage of.
“The fact is Fleur has been a sensation on I’m A Celebrity. She’s won over the nation.
“While all campmates will get a career boost as a result of the show, it looks like Fleur will get the most out of it.
“It’s always easier for singers to cash in because their popularity can easily translate into record sales and gig bookings.”
Fleur looked set for stardom after she made the final of The X Factor in 2014. She was signed by label Syco and scored a hit with her debut single.
But late last year she was taken off their roster after failing to secure long-term chart success.
Our source added: “Fleur’s singing career had stalled. But her time on I’m A Celebrity looks set to change all that. She’s likely to do very well.” Fleur, 31, has impressed viewers with her ballsy attitude during trials. It helped her outlast household names including Nick Knowles and Noel Edmonds.
Her stint in camp also helped her feel stronger.
In the past she has suffered from depression that was so severe loved ones feared she would quit singing.
But after three weeks in the Jungle she is ready for anything.
Before her exit last night she told how the series had been lifechanging for her.
Fleur said: “For me it is making friends for life and having that night in the Jungle Arms. I was like, ‘I’m going to remember this moment here forever’.
“I feel like I can face anything now. “I don’t think I will question myself anymore.”
