Matt Cardle would love to work with Chris Martin

Matt Cardle has confessed that his dream collaboration would be with Chris Martin.

The X-Factor winner, who famously duetted with Rihanna in the 2010 final, declared his admiration for the Coldplay frontman when asked who he would most like to work with during an interview with MUZU.TV.

He said: "I think he's an absolute genius and I would love to work with him. I know that he's a busy boy and in one of the biggest bands in the world, but if he has five minutes, half an hour or half a day sometime."

The 28-year-old former painter and decorator also championed his fellow talent show finalists One Direction ahead of tomorrow night’s Brit Awards:

"I think One Direction will get the 'Best Single' [award] because of their fans. I think they have an incredible following and they're so strong and loyal that anything they put their mind to, they can make it happen for the guys.”

The ‘When We Collide’ star later went onto praise their debut single: "I want to take my hat off to Savan Kotecha for writing 'What Makes You Beautiful', because that is like pop perfection. The first time you hear it you're like, 'Well that's a number one!' I love it and I think they're brilliant."

Cardle released ‘Amazing,’ the third single from his debut album, ‘Letters,’ on a new four-track E.P. last week.
