X Factor’s Matt Terry comes out as gay saying ‘I’m taking back control’

X FACTOR star Matt Terry has come out as gay and told how he is “taking back control” after breaking his silence on his sexuality for the first time.

The Bromley-born singer, 30, was the winner of the 13th series back in 2016, beating Saara Aalto to the ITV show’s crown.

He has told Gay Times how he is “proud” and “no longer afraid” to open up on his past relationship with a man – which he was forced to keep secret due to the pressures of the show.

Matt’s debut single, When Christmas Comes Around, peaked at number three four years ago.

Yet he told the publication how, at the time, he was forced to tell his partner to keep their love a secret.

He confessed: “I said to him, ‘You’re not allowed to tell anyone about this’ and he loved me enough to do so.

“It’s such a regret of mine, and I’m just really sorry.”

All change

We recently reported how he looked completely different following a transformation for a new job.

He proved a huge fan-favourite performing on cruise ships treating holidaymakers who were willing to pay an extra £25-35 to his vocals as well as a three course dinner.

He also stripped down to his pants in a clap back at the trolls who plagued his X Factor experience with bodyshaming comments.

Raw reveal

Just last month, he exclusively told us he would “never understand” why he was dropped from his record label.

It comes after the release of single Ghost Of Me this year.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun on the breakdown of his relationship with his former label, he told us: “I have spoken to RCA, but I’ve never really asked sort of what happened, because I don’t know if I want to know.

“I think it’s sort of like I believe that I’m where I’m meant to be, you know.

“I trust my path, I believe that where I’m at right now, in this very moment, is where I’m supposed to be.

“I do question… Hold on. I’ve got hundreds of millions of streams. I generated millions of pounds. I have collaborations with Enrique IglesiasSean Paul, Red One; I have hits that I’ve written for other people and artists over the world, and yet they still didn’t want to do a second album, so I don’t know. Will I ever understand that? No.

“I know the the president of RCA that was there at the time isn’t there anymore. But who knows? Maybe one day I’ll ask the question. But for now I don’t need to know. I’m okay with where I am.”
