One Direction fans may want to befriend Xtra Factor presenter Matt Edmondson 'cause he's got treasure trove of previously unseen 1D videos at home!

Matt, who is co-hosting the X Factor spinoff show with Rylan Clark-Neal this year, has revealed he worked with One Direction before they became globally famous, as they helped him create an online show in 2010.

"About five years ago I made a show online about The X Factor, it was the One Direction year so I knew them before they were famous!" said Matt.

"I actually have a hard drive full of videos One Direction made for me of them contributing bits to my show. So I did think that if this all goes horribly wrong I may just end up selling this hard drive on eBay. There will be fans out there who will want to get their hands on it!"

We imagine there will be!

Matt and Rylan are taking over the reigns on Xtra Factor from Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom, who bowed out after one year presenting the show .

"It's going to be live, funny and for the fans," said Matt. "We're going to ask the questions that need to be asked. More than anything we're just going to mess about a lot. So if you want to join the after party and have some fun then come and join us."

X Factor returns Saturday, 27 August at 8pm.
