Former winner of The X Factor Matt Cardle and Mel C kissed on stage after a performance of their new song Loving You.

The pair performed the song at London’s G.A.Y. nightclub on Sunday night and appeared to take the lyrics of the song literally.

Earlier, Mel C had blasted The X Factor for leaving Matt out of a new promotional video featuring former X Factor winners.

“I think it’s really f***ing rude the way they have left him out,” Mel C told the Sunday People.

“He was such a great winner and he’s gone on to do brilliant things. Matt’s possibly one of the best winners on the show.”

Matt beat One Direction to win The X Factor in 2010.
