X Factor winner Matt Terry will head to the North East to take part in a summer show in South Shields.

The Sunday Concerts series will also feature Louisa Johnson, Jedward and 5 After Midnight. The open-air performances take place at Bents Park on Sunday 23 July as part of the South Tyneside Festival.

Matt Terry rose to fame late last year after auditioning for the ITV talent show with his version of Ben E King’s Stand by Me.

Mentored by Nicole Scherzinger, he emerged victorious after beating Saara Alto in the final.

His winner’s single, When Christmas Comes Around, written by Ed Sheeran, got to number three in the UK charts and he is currently working on new material.
