Sam Bailey has revealed that she has finally had her first meeting with Simon Cowell - after her debut album went to number one.

The X Factor winner had previously said she had been chatting on the phone to the show boss since her December win, but was yet to meet him in person.

According to The Sun, when Sam filmed a Celebrity Juice episode that is due to air tonight (April 3), she said: "I met him for the first time at London's Dorchester Hotel. He is lovely.

"He's my boss. I've got to say nice things about him."

At the weekend, Sam, who is pregnant with her third child, saw her debut album The Power Of Love go straight to the top of the charts, becoming the first of the ITV show's winners to do so with a first release since Alexandra Burke in 2009.

The Daily Mirror reported that she was invited to a charity event at the Dorchester by new dad Simon, where she performed and then met her boss for the first time.

Simon apparently also sent the 36-year-old flowers to congratulate her on her chart-topping album.

Sam recently revealed that her X Factor mentor Sharon Osbourne has agreed to be godmother to her new baby.

Celebrity Juice airs on ITV2.
