Former X Factor victor Matt Cardle says drug addiction almost killed him

Matt Cardle's 'fall from grace' after X Factor caused descent into drug addiction

'I was completely addicted, ' he said, which was the point that even his dealer tried to step in and help him.

This is particularly when his career started heading south, while his One Direction pals soared to global fame.

After a minor injury on his finger in a tour bus, Matt demanded he be prescribed Tramadol - the same drug Ant McPartlin admitted previously being addicted too.

'I wasn't that injured, I didn't really need it. I started eating Tramadol for fun if I'm honest, ' he told the Sun. "He was like, 'You're never having any more of them off me".

Now 34, the singer also admitted that he began taking potentially risky concoctions of valium and alcohol, noting: "the first time I did Valium was on a flight to LA and that was it".

'Valium and alcohol are lethal together anyway. It's a muscle relaxant and your heart's a muscle, ' he says about the mixtures he was experimenting with.

The X Factor victor was a huge success on the show after getting over 44% of the final's public vote.

Although the labor market has become healthier over the past year, there is still some slack, Poloz said. Getting back to that threshold would add another 100,000 people to the labour force, he said.

'I came and met him and he just saw the state I was in because I didn't have any and then he went, "No I'm not going to give them to you".

"You go out and you have a few drinks, then someone will be like "here you go" and it all stems from that".

The musician's growing dependency on drugs and alcohol resulted in several near-death experiences.

Matt revealed that he would often wake up in his house and not know what had gone on, saying, "I didn't realise because a lot of it was on my own, I would wake up in various parts of my flat, in the toilet, in my bedroom, on the bed, off the bed, in the lounge, and it would always be like, 'Oh that's where it ended'".

This led the dealer to contact Matt's brother to raise his concerns and eventually Matt checked into rehab at The Priory to get clean. "I could fall off at the drop of a hat, so I've got to watch myself".

The singer is now dating project manager Amber Hernaman, 27 and said his two-year relationship for with brunette beauty has kept him on the straight and narrow and focusing on his career again.

Now Matt is set to release his brand new album Time To Be Alive which is out to pre-order.
