X Factor 2012: Jahmene Douglas has Jade Ellis crush... sort of!

Jahmene Douglas (X Factor 2012)

Jahmene Douglas has revealed he's got an X Factor crush, on lesbian Jade Ellis!

The 20-year-old told us: "If I could hook up with anyone, it would be Jade... if she wasn't a lesbian, of course!"

Speaking to press backstage at the show's studios earlier this week, Jahmene revealed he was still a virgin.

"They're quite young aren't they? They're either a lesbian or too young," he said about the girls in the competition. "I think a lot of female attention goes over my head, because I don't find myself worthy enough really.

"I'm just waiting for that one, that's why I'm wearing a purity ring. [Because] I'm not married."

Jahmene also revealed he was refusing to sing any tracks that he saw as "degrading".

"Anything degrading to women or [with] swearing [I won't sing]," he said. "I can't see what's around in the charts for children... I think a lot of people are yearning for that soul back."
