Motherwell X-Factor finalist Nicholas McDonald will now launch his first single, Answerphone, on March 16 - to be followed next day by his first album, in the Arms of an Angel.

It will be a collection of contemporary covers including Adele ‘Someone Like You’, Bruno Mars ‘Just The Way You Are’ and Westlife ‘Flying Without Wings’.

The album will also feature three original songs - including ‘Answerphone’ plus ‘Smile and ‘Solid Gold’, which Nicholas co wrote with Paul Barry.

X-Factor winner Sam Bailey’s first album, also a miscellany of covers, is due to launch exactly a week after Nicky’s album on March 24.
