Anton Stephans has revealed Nick Grimshaw is still on his Christmas card list despite them falling out on live TV at the weekend.

Anton Stephans says Nick Grimshaw is still on his Christmas card list.

The 45-year-old 'X Factor' hopeful was involved in a live spat with the talent show judge after he branded him "fake" following his performance on the show at the weekend, but he's now insisted he's not holding any grudges.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "He's still on my Christmas card list. He will get more than a piece of coal as a present."

Anton - who was later voted off the singing competition - has admitted that while he may have reacted badly to Nick's comments, he appreciates all the nice things he's said about him throughout the process.

He explained: "You must remember that Nick has so many wonderful things to say about me and even though he said that, he also said some really nice things about how I sang and you mustn't forget that and I certainly don't. There are no hard feelings."

And Anton isn't worried about Nick refusing to play his future records on his radio show.

He added: "I don't think Nick is the kind of person who would let that happen. He had a point of view and I had a point of view and he is there to judge after all."
