X Factor's Matt Terry is apparently being overshadowed by Saara Aalto on the live tour.

The top eight acts from last year's show are currently on the road, playing to arenas nightly on the official live tour.


Alongside Matt and Saara are 5 After Midnight, Emily Middlemas, Honey G, Ryan Lawrie, Samantha Lavery and Four Of Diamonds.

Sources have suggested that the tour is more about runners up Saara and 5 After Midnight rather than Matt.

The two have more songs than the winner, who only appears at the very end of the live stage show.

"People have been calling the tour The Saara Aalto Show," a source told The Sun newspaper. “She has huge production and comes on stage at different times throughout, while Matt just comes on once at the end.

“He must be in the dressing room for two hours before he comes on stage listening to the crowd go mad for her.”

In our X Factor tour poll it's Saara who leads the way as the fan favourite act, ahead of Emily and 5 After Midnight, with winner Matt ranking in fourth place.

Today the X Factor tour is in Cardiff before heading to Newcastle tomorrow (Friday).

From there it's onto Leeds and then over to Ireland with more gigs in Belfast and Dublin.


The tour will conclude back on the south coast of Great Britain with two dates in Brighton on March 16 and 17.
