Matt Cardle: a slight case of over-grooming?

I’m sorry but I feel utterly compelled to comment on X-Factor finalist Matt Cardle’s transformation from good-looking painter-decorator with a great voice to over-preened, tangerine monster. This is a shot of  him getting ready for the show with a last-minute pluck and paint. But really, what show is he getting ready for?

X Factor’s Olly talks male grooming

olly copyHeavily sponsored by L’Oreal, one of my favourite X-Factor contestants, Olly Murs, has been talking male grooming this week.
