Redbridge band Loveable Rogues, who reached the final of Britain’s Got Talent, made it into the top 10 on Sunday with their single, What a Night.

Band members Te Eugene, 19, of Ilford, Sonny Jay, 19, a former West Hatch High School pupil of Chigwell and Eddie Brett, 21, of Chingford reached an impressive number nine in the UK Top 40 with their new track.

The trio were the first Britain’s Got Talent band to be signed to Simon Cowell’s record label in a deal that was reportedly worth £500,000.

Sonny took to Twitter on Sunday to comment on their chart position: “Over a year ago we were performing in bad pubs in front of no one. Now we’re in the charts.”

The group first formed three years ago after meeting at Colins Performing Arts (CPA) Studios in Romford.

They have performed at various concerts including a memorial for former West Hatch High teacher, Anne Horne, after she died of cancer and also at The Cauliflower pub in High Road, Ilford.
