X Factor finalist Matt Cardle says sorry to rival singer Katie Waissel

Matt Cardle and fellow X Factor finalist Katie Waissel are speaking again following their huge bust-up last month.

The painter/decorator apologised to the blonde singer yesterday after he called her a ‘fame-hungry twat‘.

‘Me and Matt are fine now,’ Katie, 24, tells The Sun.

‘Everyone gets hot under the collar sometimes. We’re getting on really well and it’s going to be OK.’

Matt, 27, was furious with Katie after it was claimed she leaked stories about them being caught in bed together.

She has always denied the allegations.

‘That stuff about us being in bed together was absolute bullshit,’ said Matt last week. ‘Katie‘s a fame-hungry twat.

‘I can’t say any more about it because nothing happened. I would never go near her. I’m not speaking to her, I don’t have anything to do with her in the house.

‘I’ve made my feelings absolutely clear and if she doesn’t get it by now then she’s more stupid than I thought.’
