James Arthur has denied sleeping with Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack, insisting he hasn't bedded anyone since the start of the live X Factor shows three months ago.
Singer James, 24, has been spotted with a number of girls in recent months including television presenting cougar Caroline, 33, who dated 18-year-old One Direction star Harry Styles when he was 17 and she was 32.
However, the unlikely sex symbol insists he has not spent the night with any girls despite being linked to a bevvy of beauties.
He told the Daily Star: "I haven't had any nookie since the show. That's for real. I've been working so hard that I honestly haven't had time."
But the 'Impossibe' singer has not ruled out a romance with Caroline in the future, adding: "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? Things like this have to be developed.
"It something develops in the future then whatever but if not I'm happy being friends with Caroline."
