It appears we've been speculating about the wrong X Factor lady following finalist James Arthur's admission that he fancies X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos.
Recent reports have speculated that Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack and James have been flirting, with Caroline even admitting on ITV1's This Morning that he makes her feel all "girlie", but the finalist has now confessed to having a crush on Tulisa.
Speaking to Look magazine, the talented 24 year-old singer said: "Tulisa is really strong and very hot, she’s definitely my type."
James, who is currently being mentored by Nicole Scherzinger added that it took him a while to get over the former Pussycat Doll's beauty. He added:
"It took me a while to get past how beautiful Nicole is before I could listen to what she was saying to me! But we’re buddies now. It takes her half an hour to make a point, what with her metaphors, but she’s inspirational and she has me in stitches."
Admitting to flirting with Caroline, James said: "I just like flirting badly with Caroline to make her feel awkward. She never has any comeback!"
In the same interview, James also admitted that he is a "great lover". He commented:
"I’m a great lover. When I’ve got a girlfriend I like to be with them as much as possible and I’m very affectionate. It’s all about respect. I’m not going to treat a woman like a piece of meat."
Get in line ladies!
