'X Factor' Winner Matt Cardle Wows Fans With Toned Body In New Shirtless Photo (PICTURE)

We might have had him down for more of a comfortable cardigan and slippers kind of guy, but ‘X Factor’ winner Matt Cardle has proved it’s not just his singing ability that keep his fans entertained in a new shirtless picture.

Matt treated fans to a glimpse of his toned body in this picture, which he uploaded to his official Facebook page.

Matt Cardle... takes his… top… off... where… sorry, what were we talking about?

While a number of viewers were shocked when he beat teen heartthrobs One Direction in the seventh series of ‘The X Factor’ back in 2010, we can absolutely see why viewers picked the phone and decided to crown Matt the winner.

Matt added the caption "#Porcelain" the name of his third album which reached the UK top 20 when it was released back in October, to the snap.

Good to see Matt scrubs up well too

He collaborated with former Spice GirlMelanie C on the album’s lead single ‘Loving You’, and due to the singers’ onscreen chemistry in the song’s video they’ve since been forced to deny rumours that they’re romantically involved.

She discussed the rumours in a chat with Closer magazine back in January, explaining: “Matt is gorgeous and he's not a bad on-screen boyfriend to have, but we're just mates.”

Mel, we suggest that you take a look at that shirtless photo and seriously reconsider that…

It was recently reported that Matt used to dateBritain’s Got Talent’ contestant Lettice Rowbotham, who wowed Simon Cowell with her violin performance earlier in the current series.
