Matt In 'Shock' Over X Factor Win
Cardle thought Rebecca would take the title...
Speaking on this morning's edition of Daybreak, Cardle said:
"It was so shocking that it made me numb straight away and I have not really got the feeling back yet… I am still in a bit of a spin about the whole thing."
The 27 year old went on to add: "I said to someone earlier 'it will probably sink in next Christmas when I watch somebody else win and I say oh, I did that last year'. It is just crazy."
The former painter and decorator went on to compliment his rival in the final, saying of Rebecca Ferguson:
"She is literally one of the sweetest girls you could ever ask to meet in your life, she is amazing.
"I thought Rebecca was going to get it, to be honest."
Talking to Daybreak host Lorraine Kelly, Matt revealed he developed a strange superstition through the competition, saying:
"I'm so superstitious and I put any kind of rubbish that I get, old sweet wrappers, cigarette wrappers, anything like that, in my bag.
"If I get through a round, then I don't take it out, so my bag is literally bursting with rubbish."
