Did Freddy and winner Matt Terry really steal a kiss on the X Factor stage last night? Well, Freddy's spoken out...
Last night’s The X Factor saw Matt Terry being crowned the winner of this year’s 2016 series. But it was when his former contestant Freddy Parker joined him on stage that really got people talking.
After Matt’s win had been announced, his former competitors all rushed onto the stage to congratulate him. And in the midst of the gang’s group hug, some people swore they saw Freddy and Matt steal a kiss.
Matt has yet to address the moment, but Freddy’s now spoken out on Twitter.
Making no secret of just how much he cares about his close pal Matt, Freddy celebrated last night by tweeting: ‘My brother. You did it.❤️ @MattTerry93’.
He then followed up my gushing: ‘Happy happy happy!!!!!!!!!!!!’.
Tellingly, Freddy then liked a photo of him and Matt cosying up for a selfie that one fan labelled as ‘proof’ they were together, as well as a tweet from a fan which read: ‘@FreddyParker98 When you hugs matt on the stage and he see you was the most epic, cute,sweet moment a part he won! @MattTerry93.’
Meanwhile, Matt appeared on Good Morning Britain earlier today where he was asked by host Piers Morgan if he was enjoying the attention from female fans.
