If anything could damage Matt Cardle’s reputation as the X Factor favourite, it’s today’s big news story – that he was caught in bed with Katie Waissel.
Although romances are said to have been banned inside the X Factor house, it hasn’t stopped the contestants engaging in some naughty games. Speaking to the News of the World, an X Factor insider said, “A group of contestants were mucking about but Katie and Matt took things further. It was obvious something steamy was going on. They’d been mucking around and ended up kissing during a silly game a few of them were playing. But there was an obvious attraction and they ended up in the same bed.”
These reports are quite interesting, as shortly after this news broke, another news story was released saying that Matt Cardle has been trying to fix his relationship with his ex girlfriend. The Daily Mirror claimed that Matt had snuck out of the X Factor house to take her for a meal.
Cardle was under much scrutiny from the press as they released stories that he dumped his girlfriend because the X Factor thought it would be better for his image if he were single. Matt Cardle denied these claims.
Katie Waissel is getting quite the reputation for being sex crazed and flirty after a few men have crawled out of the woodwork admitting to having bedded the popstar wannabe or at the very least watched her flirting to get ahead.
Cynics would be forgiven for thinking that Katie Waissel is using Matt’s popularity to raise her own, or that it is some elaborate attempt to lower Cardle’s name from the “most likely to win” list. Whatever happens, Miss Waissel looks set to keep on making the headlines. It’s just a shame it’s not for her singing.
