Matt won the competition in December

The X Factor winner Matt Terry has hailed the song penned for him by Sam Smith as “absolutely incredible”.

The Bromley singer triumphed over rival Saara Aalto to win the competition last year but missed out on a number one with his Ed Sheeran-penned debut track When Christmas Comes Around.

He has confirmed that Oscar-winner Smith has now written him a track, telling ITV’s Good Morning Britain: “I did get a song sent written by Sam and it’s absolutely incredible.”

He appeared on the morning show with Aalto, who also confirmed she had received a song from chart-topping star Sia.

She said: “For me it feels so surreal that I’m a girl from Finland and these people like Sia are sending songs.”

She also revealed she will headline a huge concert when she returns home and Terry will be joining her on stage, saying: “After The X Factor tour I’m going to have my own arena concert in Helsinki on April 15 and 13,000 people are coming and I really wanted to bring a part of X Factor with me to Finland so Matt is coming to sing with me, which is really great.”

The pair will first reunite with their fellow X Factor contestants for the tour but Terry said it feels like no time has passed since they were on the show.

He said: “ Sometimes it does feel like yesterday but then I look back and I think oh my god we did that.

“Sometimes I do have to pinch myself to think what I’ve done.

“We both love it, we’ve been in the studio, we’ve been rehearsing for the tour, we have got to do so many cool things like the red carpets and go to these amazing awards.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
