Matt Cardle has insisted he is single. X Factor favourite Matt Cardle has dismissed reports he is back with his ex-girlfriend as “totally wrong”.

Rumours were rife after pictures appeared in the press showing the pair together, but the 27-year-old painter and decorator said he is on the market.

He said: “I’m single. It is totally wrong but she is a lovely girl and we still talk to each other.”

He also praised his mentor Dannii Minogue, saying: “She is really, really caring and supportive. She is always in contact to make sure we are happy with our songs.”

Matt, who is now 6-4 favourite to win the show, admitted it was “odd” being followed by crowds of screaming fans.

He said: “It’s a bit odd if I’m honest. It is a sign that they are enjoying what we are doing on the weekend.”

But Katie Waissel clearly has no such problems. The 24-year-old tweeted a message to fans on Friday, writing: “I’ll be back out again soon, I promise!! it’s so cute whenever u scream for One Direction I can’t help but scream with you lol!!xxx”

The 11 remaining contenders will perform in Saturday’s show with the results of the public vote unveiled on Sunday.
