Sam Bailey has been dropped by Syco less than 18 months after she won The X Factor in 2013.
The singer confirmed the news today on Twitter posting:

Sam released her debut album The Power of Love in 2014 and it sold over 200,000 copies in the UK. The album was the second fastest-selling album by a female artist last year and was re-issued prior to Christmas with additional tracks.
After winning The X Factor in 2013, Sam scored a Christmas number one with her debut single Skyscraper. She is currently in the midst of a UK tour which ends at the Eventim Apollo in London on Wednesday.
The X Factor’s 2014 winner Ben Haenow will be hoping he has more success than Bailey when he releases his debut album later this year.
