X Factor singer Matt Terry has said he doesn't see the comparisons to 1D's Louis Tomlinson.

Matt had the internet going crazy on Sunday night when he walked into the auditions room, with many seeing a close resemblance to One Direction star Louis.

However Matt himself says: "I don't see it, but lots of people approach me and say I look like Louis Tomlinson!"

He added he was a fan of the group and told the ITV website: "It's a shame they split up."

23-year-old Matt revealed to the judges during Sunday night's auditions that was a waiter but had to quit his job after an upsetting break up.

In fact, Matt was dumped just before his birthday three years into the relationship.

"Music is my passion, it's the dream come true, it's what I'm here for," he said. "I'm going to go for it with everything I have."

It turns out that The X Factor isn't Matt's first audition having also gone for roles in West End musicals including The Book of Mormon, Kinky Boots and Thriller Live.

But if none of it works out, there's always the option of working in a One Direction tribute group.

Matt quipped: "Maybe if I'm unsuccessful in a couple of years... maybe I could put that together!"

The X Factor 2016 auditions continue this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
