Speaking to The Sun, the 24-year-old The Power of Love singer, who won the competition on Sunday, said his visa only allowed him to stay in the UK for the duration of the show.

He said: 'I need to get a new visa. I will have to leave the UK for a bit as you're not allowed to just stay forever.

Show bosses are now said to be negotiating for him to stay in the country, with the latest news putting single promotion and his place on the X Factor live tour in jeopardy.

Earlier this week Dalton insisted he doesn't just want to be known as 'The X Factor guy' after being crowned the winner of this year's series.

The singer beat out fellow finalists Scarlett Lee, 21, and Anthony Russell, 28, for the crown in a nail-biting final.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Dalton told how he doesn't think winning the show guarantees anyone anything, after some finalists have found greater success than some of the winners.
