XFactor: James Arthur brands Matt Cardle 'jealous'

Matt Cardle

XFactor's credible winners Matt Cardle and James Arthur have continued to slag one another off on Twitter.

The pair's row has been going for some weeks now, ever since James said past male winners of the show were all a bit rubbish.

Matt didn't like this and hit back, in a conversation we're doubting ever took place: "I said, 'Look, James, you're very talented but you haven't sold two million records yet, which I have.'

"You haven't had two top ten albums yet, which I've had. Don't start mouthing off before you've even really left the show."

Matt went on: "I doubt he's even listened to my albums. It's a shame and I hope it doesn't do him too much damage.

"Not only has he offended me but he's offended every other person that's won the X Factor and everyone who works or has written on these albums.

"That's some of the best songwriters in the world - all these people - and he's now rubbished their work. So it's a pretty s*** thing for him to have said."

At the start of the weekend, the pair reignited as James took to Twitter to brand Matt desperate for press.

He tweeted: "2 million returned and now live in the bargain bin at asda give it up the tunes are brutal.. the desperation for press is embarrassing."

James added: "Get bummed.. Some more."

Hitting back again last night, Matt tweeted (indirectly, of course): "It's very very cosy in the bubble.... It really is."

But James was quick to type a few words online himself.

He tweeted: "Jealousy is a weak emotion.. Learnt that in the real world where I lived for quite some time.."
