We caught up with him after the show to ask him a few questions of what he's been up to since appearing on ITV's The X Factor in 2005…
How would you describe your time on the X Factor?
I would say my time was definitely memorable and life changing. Not only did it change my life, it has also changed my career without a doubt. There was a great vibe surrounding the X Factor and myself and the other contestants had no expectations considering the show had such a high profile.
Do you keep in touch with any of the contestants?
I do, I still keep in touch with some contestants such as Nicholas Dorsett, Chico and one of the boys from Journey South. Shayne Ward and I also tweet eachother on a regular basis.
How did you find representing the UK in the Eurovision song contest?
It was brilliant, the spectacle of the competition was just fantastic and it was such a good experience. I would have liked to have gone to Europe to promote the single before the show but I would certainly advise anyone to go on it despite the show being so politically high jacked.
My inspirations would be the people who have supported me including my family, my wife, my mum, my kids and best friend.
The book will let the audience know how I can relate to the songs included in this album to the memories I have captured.
How is this album different to your previous albums?
I would say that it's formatted differently and it's certainly the most personal album I have done. It gives a good reflection and an insight into my life.
What is your favourite song on the album?
I don't have a favourite but it is my favourite album, it’s the best one I’ve done so far.
What are your future plans in music?
In the short term I am doing a Panto in Weymouth for Jack in the Beanstalk and I am also doing Boogie Nights with the Osmonds and Gareth Gates as well as a couple of soul shows including the tour with the History of the Big Bands.
Finally, if you could duet with anyone who would it be?
If I could duet with anyone it would be Sade. I would have also loved to duet with Donny Hathaway when he was alive.
