Matt Cardle shares more than some style tips with head X Factor stylist!
Friday 12 November 2010
The 27-year-old ex-painter and decorator has allegedly struck up a secret romance with X Factor stylist, 33-year-old Grace Woodward.
Not only will the news come as a blow to his heartbroken ex Lauren Cutmore – who believed they would be reunited – but all X Factor acts are banned from having relationships in their ITV house.
According to the Daily Mirror, the pair have been spotted kissing backstage by production staff and Miss Woodward has even nicknamed the singer ‘Matt Cuddles’!
A production insider told the Daily Mirror how smitten Matt is, saying: “He tried to hide his feelings for a long time but he just feels so strongly about Grace.
“Anyone who met her would see why. She is stunning, not only on the outside but inside too.
“It’s funny as Matt doesn’t need much styling compared to the younger singers but that hasn’t stopped him spending time with Grace.”
And Grace even tweeted: “Watch for Matt, we love a soft man to touch.”
But the production insider stressed how Simon Cowell had warned the contestants against entering into any new relationships whilst on the show.
“He wants the best for all the contestants and for there to be no distractions”, said the insider.
A friend of dumped Miss Cutmore said: “She feels hurt and is gutted that their chances of getting back together seem over.”
