But X Factor finalist Matt Cardle was not charged
The painter/decorator was taken into custody when police found cocaine in his car.
But the class-A powder belonged to someone else and Matt, 27, was never charged.
X Factor bosses say they’ve always known about the mix-up.
‘Because Matt wasn’t charged there was no need for him to discuss it,’ a spokesman tells the News Of The World.
‘He’s older than most of the contestants and has lived a little but he’s on the straight and narrow now.’
