Simon Cowell reportedly has his eye on Britain's Got Talent singing quintet Collabro.

The TV and music mogul is said to be interested in adding the operatic boyband to his Syco roster, and is already drawing up a record deal for the five-piece.

A source told The Sun: "They're already favourites to win, they've got talent and Simon reckons he can make them massive."

Collabro - consisting of 20-year-old kitchen salesman Matthew, NHS worker Jamie, 23, waiter Tom, 24, sales assistant Michael, 23, and 20-year-old labourer Richard - got four "yeses" from the judges after their rendition of Stars from musical Les Miserables.

Amanda Holden said: "You just reduced me to tears. I could just burst with pride for you because that was brilliant," while David Walliams called their performance "flawless".

Simon, who created operatic pop group Il Divo and a younger version Angelis, told the group: "It was an absolutely brilliant audition... Britain does have talent."
