"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."

Matt went on to make judges' houses at the weekend where he performed a song about his ex, She's Out Of My Life.

Now in the live shows, Matt's faced claims that he's secretly back together with his ex and they're living with one another.

But he insisted this week: "No, we're not back together!"

Matt explained: "I saw the stories and it couldn't be more false. We're on good terms and we do speak. We have the same friendship group."

Chatting ahead of Saturday's show, Matt said he wasn't using his ex as a "sob story" either.

The Louis Tomlinson look-a-like revealed: "It's more like a lesson. I'd never been through heartbreak before. I didn't know how to handle it. Being on The X Factor has brought me out of that darkness."

And spending a lot of time around Nicole Scherzinger probably helps too.

"She is very beautiful. But when she's there talking to you, you just feel so at ease. It's refreshing," Matt said of his mentor.

The X Factor 2016 airs live this Saturday night on ITV from 8PM.
