James Arthur - Handbags At The Ready: The James Arthur vs Matt Cardle Twitter Battle Hots Up Once Again

To most people, X Factor victors James Arthur and Matt Cardle could hardly be anymore alike, however an ongoing dispute between the two on Twitter is proving that the two really don't see eye to eye.

Both are the most bog-standard of performers, who rose to fame on the X Factor, have a similar passion for facial stubble and will no doubt fall into the same pit of obscurity as so many others like them have over the years. Still, the two have been at each others throats like a pair of school-ground girls for the past couple of weeks and even with Christmas on the horizon the two look as though they'll bring their feud into the new year. Here's a blow-by-blow account of what the pair have been nattering about over the past few weeks:

It was Arthur who really started things off, posting this on his Twitter: "the blokes that have won before have had a niche, they haven't sold records because they haven't made great albums. That's the bottom line."

Needless to say, Cardle wasn't best pleased with this bold statement, no matter how true it was, and told the Daily Mirror shortly after: "I said, 'Look, James, you're very talented but you haven't sold two million records yet, which I have. You haven't had two top ten albums yet, which I've had. Don't start mouthing off before you've even really left the show.'"

We're not sure when, or even if this conversation between the two took place, but regardless of that the two have still been at each other's throats since. Yesterday (Dec 21) Arthur stuck his stiletto heel in a little further with yet another agressive tweet aimed at Cardle, this time typing: "2 million returned and now live in the bargain bin at asda give it up the tunes are brutal.. the desperation for press is embarrassing." He then followed that up with: "Jealousy is a weak emotion.. Learned that in the real world where I lived for quite some time.."

Ladies please, this is getting quite out of hand now and frankly no one really cares either way. Let's hope they kiss and make up soon though before things really get ugly.
