The duo are now signed to Cowell's record label Syco, and will release their debut LP Together on September 24.

"We had a meeting with him, he made a little apology," Jaconelli told BBC Breakfast.

Antoine joked: "Like a Simon Cowell apology. The word 'sorry' wasn't actually involved, but the implication was there."

The 17-year-old also revealed that he may attempt to break into professional opera in the future.

He said: "I would at some point like to be in an opera, but it would take years of studying."

Jaconelli added that the pair have no hard feelings over Talent winners Ashleigh & Pudsey, saying: "Ashleigh & Pudsey are so lovely you can't have any negative reaction to it."

Together will feature covers by artists including Take That and Elton John alongside new songs.

Jonathan & Charlotte will star in their own one-off documentary on ITV1 on November 6.
