Arthur hits out at X Factor wannabes

Not content with having a go at a certain boyband, James Arthur has slammed 'X Factor' wannabes Kingsland Road.

The 25-year-old singer – who won last year's series of the ITV show – has taken to Twitter to hit out at the group, insisting they make him "cringe" and has called for their stint on the competition to come to an end this weekend.

He wrote: "Im sorry but this Kingsland Road have me cringing to the max, they aren't good enough. There time must come to an end this Sunday #xfactor (sic)"

However, the 'You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You' hitmaker has voiced his support for former 'X Factor' groups Union J and One Direction, as well as four-piece boy band Lawson.

He tweeted: "UNION J ALL DAY!!

"Now this is what I'm talking about we have @UnionJworld @onedirection and dare I say @LawsonOfficial (boyband? Not boyband?) Kingsland no (sic)"
