'X Factor' winner Matt Cardle has topped the Irish singles charts this week, beating competition from comedy duo Rubberbandits.

The singer's debut single 'When We Collide' went straight to the top of the charts this week, despite an Internet campaign to get Rubberbandits' single 'Horse Outside' to Number One.

The Limerick group were placed Number Two in the Irish singles chart this weekend.

Cardle's single is a cover of Biffy Clyro's song 'Many of Horror', which was placed at Number 10 in the charts.

Rubberbandits are due to appear on 'The Late Late Show' tonight.
