James Arthur outdoes Rylan Clark on the fake tan

It seems James Arthur has been taking a few make-up tips from Rylan Clark  but went a little over board.

The X Factor contestants were photographed together backstage at ITV’s This Morning but James looked a tad on the orange side.

The Get Down singer showed us all just how little his knowledge is in applying tan as his hands were clearly missed.

Unfortunately, the 2012 X Factor winner has not been helping himself lately and has been involved in a few Twitter spats.

The Impossible singer slated One Direction on the social media site before posting a homophobic slur to a rapper and labelling his fellow contestant Lucy Spraggan a “two-faced fickle attention seeker”.

It seems that even Simon Cowell is not happy with him and after James called all the X factor winner “muppets”, the music mogul said: “I think James, unfortunately, has had so many issues with what he has done publicly – which is a real issue with me. Somebody should have told him to shut up and just put the records out.”
