'Britain's Got Talent' hopeful Michael Collings has moved out of his caravan home.
The 19-year-old singer - who wowed judges Amanda Holden, David Hasselhoff and Michael McIntyre with his rendition of Tracy Chapman's 'Fast Car' - is relocating to a house in his local town of Whitleigh, Devon, with girlfriend Sarah and their newborn son Jamie.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Michael loved the caravan and has no regrets about that part of his life. But he is a dad now and wants to bring up his son as a family with Sarah.
"They've been on the waiting list for a council house for a while and finally one has come up. Hopefully in a few weeks they will be in."
As well as saving up for a 'Big Fat Gypsy Wedding', Michael recently revealed he wanted to make enough money from singing so his family could move into a two-bedroom house.
He said: "Sarah is up for a big wedding. We watched 'Big Fat Gypsy Weddings'. Who wouldn't want a wedding like that - although I'm not sure about the huge dresses!
"We got engaged a year-and-a-half ago. We haven't set a date, but now we've had our baby, I just want to make things official.
"I'd love to make a living out of singing. Sarah is over the moon for me. But she is stuck at home with the baby and times are hard when I'm not there. If I won, I'd buy a two-bed house."
