Over the years the guys who have won The X Factor haven't exactly set the charts alight.
While there have been some successes - such as James Arthur's recent comeback - most were dropped after just one album.
But Matt is confident of success, saying: “I don’t think the show is a curse, it’s all down to you and how hard you work.
“I plan on working extremely hard to be a successful artist, I would love to continue to be involved with X Factor and help future contestants.”
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Matt said he hoped to remain part of The X Factor family and even return to the show one day as a guest judge alongside mentor Nicole Scherzinger
He told the tabloid: “We are so close and after our victory we will remain close and I’ll remain part of the family.
"We will see what I can do but to be at Judges’ Houses with her would be a dream, I will do what I can to help out.”
Matt went on to praise the other judges on the show this year, saying: “Nicole was so great and such a good mentor, and Sharon was so fun and so involved with her acts.
“I think I was really lucky to get who I did on the panel and I’d keep it the same. Every time I saw Sharon in the corridor she’d stop me and grab me and just say: ‘Oh I do love you Matt’, it was just a great bunch of people this year.”
Matt's winners single When Christmas Comes Around is out now.
