X Factor winner James Arthur denies hooking up with Caroline Flack

James Arthur (X Factor 2012)

X Factor winner James Arthur has denied hooking up with Caroline Flack... yet!

The singer has been linked to the Xtra Factor host after the pair were spotted on an apparent date last week.

But James insists that the pair were just "good friends", although suggested he'd be up for something a bit more serious with the telly host in the near future.

“I haven’t had any nookie since the show. That’s for real," James told the Daily Star Sunday this weekend. “I’ve been working so hard that I honestly haven’t had time.”

Speaking of Caroline in particular, the 24-year-old continued:: “She is genuinely just a really good friend.

“She’s a professional and has a job on the X Factor. I don’t think it is particularly in her interest to start seeing contestants on the show.

“But maybe we shall see in the future. Who knows?"

He added: “Things like this have to be developed. If something develops in the future then whatever but if not I’m happy being friends with Caroline.”

Meanwhile, James has revealed he's already planning what to buy ahead of the release of his winner's album.

He told the newspaper: “I’m moving down to London into a place in Notting Hill and want to pimp it up a bit.

“The first thing I’ve ordered is a massive TV so I’m going to get online with my new Premiership friends and play FIFA on it."
