X Factor success story Union J has signed its 25th UK licensing partner in just five months of first entering the licensing sector.

"The boys have an incredibly strong following of fans and with all the exciting things happening in 2014 such as the planned European Tour, US promotion, another album, and wealth of UK gigs, Union J will continue on from this fantastic start."
