The official music video for Matt Terry's X Factor winner's song has premiered online.

This year the X Factor's winner's single is original track called 'When Christmas Comes Around', written by Ed Sheeran and Welsh songwriter Amy Wadge.

The pair previously teamed up on Ed's huge Number 1 hit Thinking Out Loud and give X Factor only its second original winner's song in 13 series.

Unusually, only winner Matt performed the song in Sunday night's final after he was crowned the winner.

Matt's winner's song can be purchased on iTunes HERE and streamed online via Spotify.

However, in a first for The X Factor, there will be NO physical release in stores.

All proceeds from sales of the song will be donated to children's charities, with clips of those the song is helping featured in the music video.

It's the fifth time the X Factor's winners single will support good causes and Simon said: "Once again, I am thrilled that the proceeds from The X Factor 2016 charity single will be going to Shooting Star Chase and Together for Short Lives.

“The main reason for doing this is that these charities help families and kids through incredibly difficult times.

“As always, we hugely appreciate the incredible support from the public.”

Matt's winner's single shot straight to Number 1 on iTunes after its release where it remains at the time of writing.

But whether or not the song can stick it out to win the Christmas Number 1 spot next Friday night remains to be seen.

The X Factor airs on ITV.
