A source reportedly told the paper that Matt had been struggling to cope with the stress of making his last two albums independently, after leaving his record label last year.

They added that the singer had allegedly decided to clean up his act on a 28-day programme before the beginning of his UK tour next April.

Matt was guided to 'X Factor' victory by Dannii Minogue in 2010, and has recently been romantically linked to former Spice Girl, Mel C.
