Rylan Clark thinks James Arthur is "really sexy".

The gay 'X Factor' contestant insists he wouldn't be interested in pursuing a relationship with any of the other hopefuls on the show, but he does find some of them attractive.

He said: "If one of the guys was gay I couldn't do it - they're like brothers.

"When we first met, I thought Kye Sones, Adam Burridge and Jake Quickenden were fit. And James Arthur is really sexy."

During his time on the show, Rylan has forged a friendship with Robbie Williams and the pair have even joked about the 'Candy' hitmaker leaving his wife Ayda Field to run away together.

Rylan told Now magazine: "Robbie said to me, 'You don't realise - I want you in my life one way or the other.' I was like, 'Godparent?' and he said, 'Sorted.' I said, 'If it doesn't work out with Ayda, you and me will run away together.' And he said, 'I'm bang up for that.' So watch this space."
