Matt Cardle has reportedly checked into rehab.

The 30-year-old singer - who shot to fame after winning 'The X Factor' in 2010 - signed up to a 28-day programme at The Priory last night (29.12.13) after becoming addicted to prescription drugs.

The 'When We Collide' hitmaker turned to temazepam and Valium after struggling to deal with the pressure of releasing his last two albums independently, following his separation from his record label last year.

A close friend of Matt's told The Sun newspaper: ''Matt is all over the place at the moment.

''His last two albums have done well in the charts, but the amount of work he has had to put in has been unreal -- and it all started to get too much for him.

''In order to calm himself down he started taking Valium and then temazepam, but things got so bad that he couldn't get up in the morning without taking pills.

''He began to realise he had a problem and decided to do something about it and get clean before his tour.''

Matt is adamant he'll curb his addiction before kicking off his UK tour next April.
