The X Factor's James Arthur In Frankie Boyle Twitter Row
Talent show finalist gives as good as he gets in online ding-dong...
James Arthurhas found himself embroiled in a Twitter spat with controversial comedian Frankie Boyle.
The singer rose to the bait after Boyle tweeted an insult about him over the weekend.
He wrote: "James McArthur is like a cross between a tramp and a duckling #xfactor"
To which James replied: "Poor old man making yet more s**t jokes about Xfactor because he knows that's the only way he can get attention any more #prat"
And Boyle countered: "I think if I wanted attention I'd sing covers on a talent show, inked up like a schooldesk in a remedial class."
But the talent show hopeful had the last word, responding: "Your about as funny as aids.
"Your a sad man and I can't wait to see you coz it's about time someone gave you a reality check."
James has made it through to next weekend's final, with boy band Union J leaving the contest in last night's public vote.
