They are claims Matt says are simply NOT true.

"We are not back together. I have no idea where that came from," he said this week.

Matt explained: "The situation is, we broke up in May.

“We’ve got the same friends, we used to be in a house share together, so to make sure it wasn’t awkward for anyone else we were mature adults about it. We said we’d be friends and try and be civil. As heartbroken as I was, it’s worked out OK.

"We aren’t back together, we don’t have any plans to get back together.

Matt went on: "I think the reason we didn’t work out is that we were in each other’s pockets too much. She’s a dancer and we both have dreams we want to fulfil, but we held each other back."

Matt says he's now "super focused" on The X Factor and "isn't looking for love right now" - but that's not stopped a lot of flirty fans.

He revealed: "I’ve had private messages on Instagram from girls sending me pictures of themselves in their underwear!

"I’m like: ‘Okay, I don’t know how old you are so I am just going to turn this off!’ They could be 15 or something. Also I think dating a fan would be crossing a line."

The X Factor 2016 airs live tonight at 8PM on ITV.
