Cowell has said that the album will be released on September 3, The Sun reports.

"Simon knows that to make money from them he needs to move fast," a source said. "Get the first album out as soon as possible before people have moved on.

"September is also a good time as The X Factor will be in its live stages, so there is a chance to get them on the show and plug the album."

Cowell said: "This show is designed to give people like Jonathan and Charlotte an opportunity. Their debut album is going to be stunning."

The album will be a collection of new tracks and cover versions, including their version of 'The Prayer', which they sang on the live final.

Jonathan & Charlotte will be working with Graham Stack, who produced the first three G4 records, on their album.

Jonathan Antoine said: "I'm still pinching myself that we are actually making our own CD," while Charlotte Jaconelli added: "This is a dream come true for us."

Cowell was rumoured to be offering the pair a £1 million recording contract regardless of their Britain's Got Talent result.
