X Factor final: Matt Cardle to duet with Rihanna

MATT Cardle will reportedly duet with R’n’B sensation Rihanna during this weekend’s X Factor final.

The 27-year-old, from Little Maplestead, near Halstead, is thought to be a strong contender to make the final three.

Bookies have made Cher Lloyd, who will sing with mentor Cheryl Cole’s friend Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, first to leave on the Saturday night.

The remaining finalists will perform again on the Sunday.

One Direction will reportedly be joined by Robbie Williams, with Rebecca Ferguson singing alongside Christina Aguilera.
