X Factor 2012 James Arthur still looking for a girlfriend

James Arthur (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 finalist James Arthur has said he's still looking for a girlfriend, despite beng seen getting with plenty of girls throughout the series.

James insisted that despite all of the pap pictures, he's not been hooking up with that many girls.

He claimed: "I’ve had a little bit of fun but nowhere near as much as people would have you believe.

"I wouldn’t have the time or stamina to be dating all those lovely ladies. I’ll definitely be up for pursuing some of the offers I’ve received after the show..."

He went on: "I’m still looking [for a girlfriend]. I’d love to fall in love and find a soul-mate.

"I’d like to meet a girl who I can write songs for and connect with on an emotional level. I’m quite a sensitive, fragile soul and I like to be looked after."

Meanwhile James revealed he had to pinch himself after getting a standing ovation from the judges at the weekend.

He told the official ITV1 X Factor website this evening: "I loved performing The Power of Love. The production was epic. I liked the Broken Heart behind me. I hope that I delivered a vocal worthy of the track.

James added: "All the comments were very encouraging. Gary said he thought it was the performance of the series. His comment really boosted my confidence.

"To also get a standing ovation from all four Judges was the icing on the cake. I had to pinch myself!"
