The X Factor winner plans to make sweet music with his pal

X Factor winner Matt Cardle is still good friends with co-contestant Aiden Grimshaw.

The former painter and decorator, 27, has been working on new material with the 18-year-old and wants to include some of the tracks on his debut album.

‘They were best mates on the show and when Aiden was booted out, Matt promised they would record a song together for his first album if he won,’ an X Factor insider tells the Daily Star.

Matt told Aiden at the X Factor wrap party he was going to honour his word whether Simon Cowell like it or not.’

Fortunately for the lads, who have also discussed sharing a flat together, Simon is keen to let Matt submit some personal songs.

‘They know they want great material, if the songs are penned by Matt then even better,’ an insider tells The Mirror.

‘He’s chuffed.’
