'The X Factor' winner Matt Terry has vowed never to take drugs
Matt Terry has vowed never to take drugs.
The squeaky clean 'X Factor' winner insists he has never tried illegal substances and he has no plans to, as he launches his music career.
He told the Daily Mirror: "I've never ever done drugs and I never will. I'm a strong-minded person and I will only do something if I want to do something.
"I come from a very grounded family - normal people - so for me it's really important to stay who I am."
Matt's vow comes just weeks after his fellow 'X Factor' contestant Honey G revealed she became addicted to narcotics after being kidnapped and sexually assaulted when she was at university.
She said: "I have struggled with addiction. I have nothing to hide. I did do some class A drugs like cocaine and I did pills.
"The thing about me is there is actually a story behind me and my life. It's not like, 'Hi I've just turned up on X Factor'.
"I've been a musician my entire life and I've been through real experiences. I'm totally real, hardcore and I have experienced things that are real.
"I do not do Class A drugs any more. A pill, a bit of coke, I would not touch that nowadays. I was still doing a bit of coke but I don't touch it now."
After Honey G's confession, 'X Factor' bosses questioned her about her drug use and issued a statement.
Spokesman Rick Behari said: "We've spoken to Honey and she's assured us she has not taken drugs while being on the show."
