2010 X Factor champ Cardle has reportedly had to get a new mobile phone number after his old one was accidentally leaked by his fellow X Factor contestants Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson from One Direction.

Styles and Tomlinson had prank called Matt Cardle during a live webchat with their fans on Sunday night. However what they didn't realise at the time was that Cardle's voicemail revealed his mobile number to all of their fans watching the webchat.

When the former painter-decorator got round to checking this found, he discovered hundreds of text messages, voicemails and missed calls from fans.
