It has been reported that James Arthur has split from his girlfriend of twelve months, Jessica Grist.
The former X Factor contestant is said to be “gutted” following the split, but busy schedules meant they were unable to make things work.
A source told The Sun: “James is absolutely gutted. He thought Jessica was The One and was looking forward to a bright future.”
Thankfully, things seem to have ended amicably, with reports saying they are still good friends.
Six months ago, the singer left Simon Cowell’s music label Syco following rumours that the music mogul was planning to drop him.
