Matt Cardle

The X Factor 2010 winner Matt Cardle yesterday confirmed he was in a relationship with one of the dancers from the 2011 live tour. According to The Sun, singer Matt is said to be dating 24-year-old backing dancer Sarah Robinson who he met while on the live shows last year.

The paper claims that the duo had set up a code word, Sheridan - Matt's middle name, so they wouldn't get caught.

A source added: "[Sarah] was worried it wouldn't last because of his career but three months on it's getting stronger."

Yesterday at the latest tour date inside a packed O2 arena, when asked whether he was still single, Matt revealed: "I'm sorry, I can't say that. I can't promise that."

And it seems this isn't the first X Factor contestant Sarah has fallen for, her former boyfriend of four years was in the boy group 4th Ba5e. Never heard of them? We don't blame you, after three auditions for the show the group still have never made it to the televised auditions!

The source continued: "It seems Sarah swapped an X Factor loser for an X Factor winner," adding: "But it's not that simple – with Matt it's the real deal."
