X Factor 2011's Craig Colton beats former winner Matt Cardle in the charts!

Craig Colton X Factor 2011

It's not looking good for Matt Cardle, with his debut single Run For You Life continuing to slip in the charts. The track is now being beaten by Jar of Hearts, as performed by Craig Colton on Saturday's show, in the current midweek chart.

It's bad news for Matt, who has alienated his X Factor fanbase over the past few weeks with a number of attacks on the show.

But despite returning to perform on the Sunday's first results programme to more than 12 million viewers, Matt's new single is still failing to get even close to the top spot.

It also leaves Gary Barlow in a sticky situation, having written the track for Matt but also being mentor to Craig!

A source told The Sun: "Fans love Craig and it's a testament to how well he sung it that Jar Of Hearts has gone soaring up the charts.

"Gary's chuffed but obviously he's hoping Matt's single does better as it's his song.

"Matt's a top bloke and has been putting the effort in for this single and his album. But the Gods don't shine favourably on male winners."
