So my guitar keeps going out of tune, its a cheap guitar but now its going out of tune when i leave it for like 10mins. I havent recently changed the strings but i was thinking it might cos they are old

Also my guitar is about 3m away from my radiator which is often turned up and down could this be it?

Sounds like pretty much everything you mentioned in your post to me; cheap hardware, old strings and temperature changes are all going to contribute.

All of those things you mentioned, but especially the changes in temperature.

all of the aformentioned problems. my guess though is that you didnt quite wind the strings enough when you put them on and some of them are slipping a bit. this would better explain how quickly it goes out of tune (as temp does change tuning, but not that fast in my experience)

He said the strings are old, it wouldn't be a recent problem if that's true.
