Please don't get your teeth done, James Arthur! I'll tell you why
James Arthur now...
James Arthur then...
James Arthur gets scrubbed up
James Arthur shows off his tattoos
With his old black-rimmed specs, wonky teeth and floppy ginger-tinge locks, he's been likened to Sloth from The Goonies on Twitter and comedian Frankie Boyle cruelly described him as looking like ‘someone put a sheep's teeth into a baby's head.'
But who cares what you look like when you've got a voice like that?
So why bother with the ‘mansformation', James?
Since winning The X Factor, he's revealed he's getting his teeth done.
James says: 'I'm probably going to get my teeth fixed. It's not a vanity thing, I've just always wanted to do it. I'm a singer and I open my mouth pretty wide. I'd like to have some nice pearly whites in there instead of the teeth I've got now. But everyone's got their hang-ups haven't they?'
And he's going on a diet too!
The 24-year-old singer from Middlesborough rocked his geek-chic look when he first auditioned for the show.
And when The X Factor style team attempted to ‘sex him up' for the live shows and removed his specs, James insisted he wasn't bothered and told me: ‘I don't care what I look like.'
Could have fooled me! Will he start plucking his eyebrows, having spray tans and having highlights next?
