Britain’s Got Talent: 12-year-old Ronan is nervous about performing to the judges – but not as nervous as his mum! Armed with a good set of lungs and a day off school – has young Ronan got what the judges are looking for? See more at http://itv.com/talent
The 13-year-old has joined Britain’s Got Talent rival Jai McDowall on the Sony scrapheap after his £1million contract was torn up.
The Norfolk lad was the victim of an online bullying campaign after allegations that Cowell ‘groomed’ him to appear on BGT. A spokesman for Parke insisted the singer had made the decision last month to go in a ‘different direction’.
Sony released Parke’s eponymous debut in October, which peaked at No.22 in the British charts.
McDowall, who beat Parke to the BGT 2011 crown was dumped by Cowell in March, also after one album.
A spokesman for Sony confirmed it was not going to proceed with another album with Ronan but ‘wished him all the best’. Insiders blamed flagging record sales for the move.
