X Factor 2012: James Arthur: 'I'm not a womaniser!'

James Arthur (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's James Arthur has insisted he's not a womaniser, after being pictured out on the town surrounded by girls!

James, who sailed through to the semi-finals at the weekend, claimed he'd only gone out once while on the show.

But he did admit to The Sun that he probably went "too far" with his drunken antics.

Still, he didn't do enough to get himself kicked out of the hotel.

He said: “I’ve only been out once or twice since I’ve been here. I had a proper blow-out that night and got pretty drunk and probably went a bit too far.

“Unfortunately, it might have tarred me with a bit of a womaniser brush."

James continued: “I’ve been in relationships for the last six or seven years, so I was just taking advantage of being able to attract lots of female attention.

“But I didn’t commit any crime — I’m young and I’m single and you only live once. And I might have gained a few lad supporters after that, who knows?"

And he teased: “What happened? Well, we played Scrabble in the hotel and had a few jokes and games... ”

The X Factor 2012 continues this weekend on ITV1 and ITV1HD with the final four acts singing songs that they hope will get them into the final.

On Sunday's results show, one more act get the axe and there will be performances from Pink and Tulisa.
