He’s the painter turned popstar - winner of last year’s X Factor and song supremo Matt Cardle popped in to Heart Breakfast today.

Find out what he’s been up to since last year’s show, who he’s tipping to win this time and whether he’s still got those handyman skills by clicking below.

Fake tan is the fifth best invention of the last 25 years according to teenagers (in Essex presumably!). Also on the list are the iPhone at number 1, social media at number 3 and Sky+ at number 8. No mention of the stuffed crust triple cheese pizza though!

A new week of The Generation Gap and a new young contestant – 11 year old Kate from Leatherhead. She got off to a good start beating her dad in round 1 and ensuring she won’t have to clean his golf clubs. Tomorrow, she takes on her mum in the game where it’s the kids versus the adults!

Only four rounds of Battle Of The Boroughs to go and New Eltham are still in pole position. You could change that though! Register to play by giving us a call during the show on 0845 605 1062 for your chance to win £1000 and take your town to the top.

Tomorrow, Uncle Bryn alias Rob Brydon will be on the show. If you’ve got a question for him (or a favourite impression you’d like him to do!) let us know on our Facebook page.

Also tomorrow, another chance to be at our Artist Of The Year, Bruno Mars’ exclusive concert. Emma will be Spicing Up Your Life with another amazing prize and you could win a theatre night out to see The Lion King on Hearticulate.

See you tomorrow!
