Caroline Flack Opens Up About X Factor's James Arthur Romance: 'It's Just A Bit Of Banter'


If you think history is going to repeat itself when it comes to Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack and an X Factor finalist, you're wrong as Caroline has dismissed the rumours of a possible romance with James Arthur by insisting that their flirting is really "just banter."

Answering Philip Schofield's question about James loving her during her appearance on ITV1's This Morning with District 3, Caroline said:

"Well yeah, he says he does, but I think it's just a bit of banter for the show! He always says before the Xtra Factor that 'right, I'm going to wind you up again' and I go 'oh, alright' it's fine."

Blushing when she was shown a clip of James kissing her, Caroline commented:

"Stop it, that's what I do when I'm embarrassed - thank god for the [cue] cards."

We suppose Harry can breathe a sigh of relief now...

With her love life all talked about, the presenter weighed in on the speculation surrounding Ella Henderson and Union J's George Shelley.

Believing that any feelings between them are purely platonic, Caroline added: "There seems to be photographers following them around in the dark looking for any movement that could be considered a relationship.

"I personally don't think that they're in a relationship... she tells me their not in a relationship, I just think they are really close friends."
