Matt Cardle tells James Arthur to "stop mouthing off"

Matt Cardle has hit back after James Arthur suggested that his creativity is compromised.

Cardle beat the likes of One Direction to win the X Factor in 2010, whilst Arthur recently won the 2012 series.

The latter was recently quoted as saying that he will have more control of his music than the past male X Factor winners, who he suggested have had to bow down to producers and songwriters.

Speaking to The Sun, Cardle said that Arthur isn't quite placed yet to comment on other artists' material, encouraging the 'Impossible' man to keep his mouth shut. The 'When We Collide' singer said:

"I said, 'Look, James, you're very talented but you haven't sold two million records yet, which I have. You haven't had two top ten albums yet, which I've had. Don't start mouthing off before you've even really left the show'."

He added: "I doubt he's even listened to my albums. It's a shame and I hope it doesn't do him too much damage. Not only has he offended me but he's offended every other person that's won The X Factor and everyone who works or has written on these albums. That's some of the best songwriters in the world - all these people - and he's now rubbished their work. So it's a pretty s**t thing for him to have said."
