It seems that former X Factor winner Matt Cardle has decided to be the bigger man and take the first steps into ending his war of words with fellow X Factor winner James Arthur. Matt even went as far as to say that he would be willing to go for a drink with James.
The war of words started, after James Arthur had a dig at the previous male winners of The X Factor, saying that they have all done rubbish albums. This angered Matt Cardle, who then hit back and told James not to get above himself before he has even achieved anything.
Now Matt has offered an olive branch to James, by saying that he finds him to be very talented, “I think he's brilliant. I think James is a very, very talented man, I'm sure he'll go very far. We haven't been for a pint yet [but] I'd love to go for a pint with him,” said Cardle.
Matt Cardle has sold over two million records since winning The X Factor and has also had two top ten albums. Meanwhile, James Arthur has had one Number One single and nothing more but comes across with the arrogance of a world beater.
Do you think James Arthur will be successful for a long time or will he be a flash in the pan artist?
