X Factor’s Matt Cardle ‘furious’ at Katie Waissel over affair rumours

X Factor contestant Matt Cardle is said to be seething with rage over reports that he was caught in bed with Katie Waissel - and is blaming the blonde star for the story, claiming she made it up to raise her profile.

Cardle, who is mentored by Dannii Minouge in the Boys category, is said to have slammed the 24-year-old singer yesterday, telling her to “stop making stuff up”.

According to The Sun, Matt, 27, is convinced that the controversial singer will go to any lengths to hang on to her place in the competition. And he thinks that she’s been behind the recent reports that the pair are enjoying a secret romance in the X Factor house.

The paper reported that Matt marched up to Katie yesterday after reading the stories, and shouted: “What do you think you’re doing? We were only watching TV – now it looks like we were an item.

“I’ve just come out of a relationship and I’m not about to get into another right now. Especially not with you. You’re not my type." He added: “Stop making this stuff up. You’ve humiliated me and you won’t have done yourself any favours.”

According to the paper, the two did share a bed together after a flirty game in the X Factor house – but only to watch TV.

Matt isn’t the first X Factor contestant Katie has been linked to; she was also recently rumoured to be enjoying a romance with Scot Storm Lee, who was booted out of the show last night, after receiving the lowest number of votes from the public.

Katie’s time on the programme has been turbulent from the very start. The singer forgot her words at her first audition, then crumbled during the Judges’ Houses stage.

She then had to put up with an angry outcry from the public, after she made it through to the Live Shows while talented singer Gamu Nhengu, who had performed consistently, failed to make the Girls category.

A show insider told The Sun that Katie has been trying to do whatever it takes to get the public back on her side – hence the recent stories about her rumoured flings with fellow contestants.

The source said: “Getting close to Matt can make her look popular. Everyone loves him. But you can’t go around making stuff up.”
