Christopher Maloney will be joining the X Factor tour, despite talks of him being left out of the gigs.
It has been reported that the singer had fallen out with bosses and some of his fellow contestants, leading him be dropped from the show's final.
The budding singer split public opinion with his emotional on-stage displays, and was criticised by the show's judges for being "too cheesy". Christopher, however, managed to secure an impressive third place slot in the competition.
He said: "All I done was follow my dream, coming 3rd was an achievement. feel gutted I didn't win an im unwell right now, plz xx."
His future on the tour was put in doubt after reports of rows behind the scenes at the X Factor final in Manchester but a spokeswoman for the tour confirmed Christopher would take part.
James Arthur, this year's winner, is set to top the singles chart this weekend after shifting more than 255,000 copies of his song, Impossible.
The Official Charts Company said the track had become the fastest-selling single of the year so far.
