James Arthur talks women and fame at Bizarre HQ

X FACTOR winner JAMES ARTHUR plans to make the most of his new fame – when it comes to meeting women.

He said: “I realise I’m not exactly Brad Pitt. I’m a bit of an ugly fucker so I’ll take what I can get while I can.

“Some of the girls I never had a hope of pulling are getting back in touch on Facebook now I’ve been on telly.”

He added: “There’s a long list of people I’d like to work with. EMELI SANDE is definitely on the list, as is DEVLIN.

ED SHEERAN has been in touch so hopefully we can do something at some point.”

A lot of X Factor winners have passed through Bizarre HQ over the years and few have lasted the distance.

But James is up there as one of the best blokes, with a genuine chance of success. He has already taken guidance from some big names — KELLY JONES and PLAN B to name just two.

And he is determined to make it — so he never has to drive a banger again.

Speaking in the office yesterday he told me: “I used to have an old Rover to get to gigs. I got up one day and it had been taken away for scrap. Hopefully that will never happen again.

“I’m ready to get an album out quickly. I don’t think I need a year away being trained or told how to perform. I’ve been doing pubs for years and have ten albums’ worth of material.

“I’ve got enough for my own stuff, others I can give to ONE DIRECTION or others.”

He was impressive on the show and improved all the way through.

The future looks good.

ten albums worth of material yassss <3 i hope this one is on his future hit album.
