He may be loved up with singing sensation Ariana Grande these days, but The Wanted star Nathan Sykes has admitted in a new interview that he used to have a thing for pop princess Selena Gomez!
Revealing his hopes of being romantically linked to the Come And Get It star in a chat that took place before he made his relationship with 20-year-old Grande Twitter-official, Sykes told We Love Pop magazine: “Now this is why I’m so jealous of Max!”
The 20-year-old added: “He follows someone on Twitter, then he is in the tabloids saying he is in a relationship. I started following the Selena Gomez and nothing. Where is my relationship?!”

Sykes did however admit that the relationship would have been a tricky one, due to the band’s friendship with Selena’s ex Justin Bieber.
Nathan revealed: “To be honest, I always liked Selena, but I really did not want to go that side because Justin would kill me!”
He continued: “I would probably receive a call from [our mutual manager] Scooter [Braun] telling me to stay away!”
The Walks Like Rihanna singer even recalled a recent near-miss with Selena, saying his “jaw dropped” when he saw her at a Justin Timberlake gig.
Sykes dished: “I must have looked like a complete idiot. My friends were like, ‘Just say hi,’ but I could not even talk to her!”
“But that’s how I am, I’m very, very nervous around girls that I really like. I need to improve my game."
Nathan and new flame Ariana finally went public with their long-rumoured romance last month, with Nathan telling his Twitter followers he was “terrified” to reveal the pair’s big news.
