You might think that Matt Cardle looks innocent enough on the outside, but he’s hidden quite a secret from the media over the last couple of years…
When he was just 11 years old, his mother took him to the police after discovering that he had purchased and carried a gun with him to school.
He told ‘The Sun‘: “I was at a posh private school in Essex, then my dad got made redundant and we went to the local school down the road. I went round to a mate’s house and he said he had a gun. Where the hell was some posh kid from Essex going to get a bullet from? It didn’t work and the older lads took it from me and were running round pretending to shoot it. I think he was expecting a cap gun. When I showed him, I’ll never forget his face. I crumbled and told them who gave it to me. He got a telling off, I got a telling off and a couple of weeks’ suspension from school. It could have been worse.”
His first single from upcoming album ‘Letters‘ will be ‘Run For Your Life‘, and will be released on October 9.
