Simon Cowell will have been sipping his morning coffee today, perusing the newspapers and planning how best to sell the James Arthur product to us all. The single sold nearly 500,000 copies in a week, so the platform for a full-length album has been nicely laid. The only thing that could stop the Middlesbrough singer from achieving an Olly Murs-esque career in pop is distractions. So the music mogul probably wasn't too happy when he came across photographs of Arthur with Made In Chelsea's Kimberley Garner!
In case you're not familiar with Kimberley, she's one of the millionaire reality stars on E4's most popular programme. She rose to fame after dating several of the 'Chelsea' stars while still living with her millionaire boyfriend Diego Divero-Volpe. It was all pretty embarrassing stuff, as Kimberley romanced McVities biscuits heir Jamie Laing, 22, diamond mining heir Francis Boulle, 23, and Eton educated broker Spencer Matthews. The problem was, poor old Diego thought he and Kimberley were perfectly happy, until he saw the whole thing unfold on his television set, according to the Daily Mail.
Anyway, it looks as though x factor winner James is dating Kimberley, after the pair were spotted hand-in-hand during a date night at trendy restaurant Hakkasan on Sunday evening. The couple headed to a nearby club Sketch, which they left together at 1am. Property heiress took to Twitter to gush, "Tonight was a fairy tale." James - who scored a No.1 single with Impossible - tweeted, "Today has been incredible. Love to all #Love."
It seems Cowell and record bosses are going to have a job on their hands to keep Arthur focused on his forthcoming album. He recently told The Sun that his dream woman was Page 3 model Rosie Jones, saying, "I do like Rosie Jones, the glamour model. I really fancy her. She can get in touch. I'm hoping she gets in touch." He has also been linked to Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack.
