X FACTOR winner Leon Jackson is set for a stunning comeback, judge Simon Cowell has said, despite fears he had sunk back into obscurity.

The pop mogul reportedly said the West Lothian teenager, who has been working on a new album, is set to become a "huge star".

Leon, 19, from Whitburn, has not released a record since his single When You Believe was the Christmas No. 1 after his victory last year.

Cowell was speaking as he launched this year's series of the talent competition. He said: "You'll find this record will be one of the biggest selling albums this year in this country and elsewhere."
