BRITAIN’S Got Talent singer Hollie Steel is set to release her debut album this year, it has been revealed.

The 11-year-old Huncoat youngster had limited success with her debut single, Where Are You, Christmas, which failed to make the Top 40.

But this year Hollie, a pupil at Oakhill College in Whalley, will complete her first full-length release.

Mum Nina said that if a major record label did not pick up the album, which will feature a range of cover tracks, the family would release it on their own label.

Their label will be called BB5, named after the Accrington postcode.

Nina said: “This year will be an amazing one for us. Last year Hollie was on national TV with Britain’s Got Talent and we now want to keep her profile as high as we can.

“The big thing for us this year is the album. It will definitely come out this year, even if we have to release it ourselves.

“Hopefully, soon, someone big will come along and sign her up. At the moment there are things and jobs that are coming along but nothing major.

“Hollie is just enjoying her singing and is happy. We are even planning to film some music videos to promote her.”

Last April, Hollie rose to fame with her audition for Britain’s Got Talent.

Her rendition of ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’, dressed in a mini ballerina tutu, was watched by two million people on YouTube and reduced show judge Amanda Holden to tears.

Hollie herself later made headlines when she burst into tears during the live finals of the show as nerves got the better of her.
