Matt Cardle labels X Factor an unstructured "free-for-all"

2010's X Factor winner, Matt Cardle, has hit out at the way the talent show is structured and thinks it has become a "free for all". 

The 'When We Collide' singer admitted that the programme has taken a turn for the worst because it now allows general contestants to release music and launch careers before the actual winner has even been given a chance to begin.

"How many years ago it was when you had to wait for the winner to come out with stuff before anyone else could? And now, it is just a free-for-all. You could probably release singles before the show’s over, it might happen this year."

Cardle will release his debut album, 'Letters', on October 17 and you can watch footage of him working on the forthcoming record here:
