After a whirlwind week, X Factor winner Matt Cardle is on track get an early Christmas present this year, after his winner’s single – a cover of Scottish rock band Biffy Clyro’s When We Collide – is set to clinch the coveted Christmas number one chart spot.
It’s thought Matt’s first solo single has sold close to a whopping 112,00 copies in just two days, after hitting stores just hours after his Sunday victory.
When We Collide is reportedly outselling its closest rivals – including Matt’s X factor duet partner Rihanna – by at least three to one, and has rocketed up the charts.
Which means the lucky star is well on the way to clinching Christmas number one.
