Simon Cowell’s company has agreed to make a donation to a music charity that successfully forced an X Factor act to change its name.

Syco was in a dispute with the charity Rhythmix over naming rights after one of the girl groups took the same title.

The Brighton-based charity, which has been operating in Kent, Surrey and Sussex for 10 years, claimed the trademark row had cost it £8,000.

The girl group agreed to change their name to Little Mix.

A statement on behalf of Syco and Rhythmix said the matter had been “positively resolved”.
