Caroline Flack 'Turned Down X Factor's James Arthur'
Xtra Factor presenter reported to have declined offer of date from singer...
The 32-year-old host of The Xtra Factor is claimed by Star magazine to have knocked back James, 24, after they struck up a friendship at the Judges' Houses stage.
A source said: "James is smitten with Caroline. He asked her out on a date but she said no.
"Caroline thinks he is good looking and of course she is flattered. But she doesn't fancy him and told him that they can't take it any further than just friends."
It is thought he might have got the wrong idea after reading comments she made about him in a Metro interview several weeks ago.
She said: "When he sings it gets you there and I don’t think we’ve had that before with an X Factor contestant.
"It's almost like you want to fix him a little bit."
Cazza famously had an on-off relationship with young Harry Styles of One Direction in the wake of the boy band's time on the show.
