Speaking to Liverpool Daily Post, he said: "I'm at a stage now where I'm not chasing pounds away - I'm just doing it to keep fit and healthy."

Last year, the Liverpudlian admitted the reasoning behind his slimmer frame was due to strict gym sessions and diet control. Mentor Gary Barlow urged Colton to shed the weight - advice he took on board.

Since finishing the show back in 2011, Colton feels he's now ready to release his material. He added: "I think the best thing about taking this time out is that I'm growing into a young man. I'm an adult now with a mortgage and bills to pay.

"I've got a different writing style to the music I made after the show. My voice is different too, but in a good way."

The album is due for release later on in the year.
