X Factor winner Matt Terry ‘nearly shot’ while recording new album


X Factor winner Matt Terry has said he was nearly shot by police while recording his new album in the United States.

Terry, 24, spoke about the alleged incident on Facebook while recording the first instalment of a new series of weekly videos called Matt Terry Mondays.

I set off the studio alarm and before I knew it I had Miami police running around the corner… held me at gunpoint, I had, um, two cops about to shoot me because they thought I was stealing from the studio.

The first thing I said was I’m from London and I don’t know why or how it was going to get me out of it but luckily someone from the studio turned up and saved the day. So I’m safe, I’m alive and I didn’t get shot.
