Matt Cardle scoops £1m X Factor recording deal

Matt Cardle has been rewarded with a £1 million record deal after winning the X Factor final.

The painter and decorator from Essex beat Rebecca Ferguson into second place after the duo sang their winner's songs in front of millions last night.

Earlier in the evening, One Direction received the lowest amount of votes to finish third.

"I just want to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for voting for me. Congratulations to everybody who got to this stage because I'm so proud and everybody should be so proud. There's not enough time to thank everybody who I want to thank," he said as he hugged mentor Dannii Minogue.

Matt will now go on to perform in front of those booking Birmingham hotels on Saturday February 19th, as he and the other finalists take part in the X Factor Live Tour 2011.

Other stars taking part in the tour include Rebecca, Cher Lloyd, Aiden Grimshaw and Wagner.
