'I owe Dannii a present'

We don't know if anyone's told you, but Matt Cardle won X Factor last night (we're a bit gutted, as we voted for Rebecca), so he could be forgiven for turning up to the ITV studios with a raging hangover. But the newly crowned celeb-in-the-making looked fresh faced (ish) and gushed his thanks for mentor Dannii.

According to The Daily Mail, Matt told Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley that he owed Dannii a little pressie for her hard work grooming the former decorator for pop stardom, 'She's off home soon, so I need to find the girl a present. I just haven't had the time or the money to do it. Though yes, I hope I'll have a bit of money now! But I must...I was so happy for her. She's been so good with all the boys, better than anyone.' Dannii tweeted her gratitude after Matt was declared victor, saying 'Thank you to everyone who voted for Matt - you have made our year :-)'

Let's hope that Matt proves to be less Steve Brookstein and little Leon and more, um, Joe McElderry...?
