James Arthur swaps phone number with Cressida Bonas after starring together in his sexy new music video for Naked

WHEN JAMES ARTHUR booked CRESSIDA BONAS to appear in his romantic new video in the week of her ex PRINCE HARRY’s engagement, it looked to be a ­master publicity stunt.

But the X Factor comeback kid insists he had no idea about the actress’s royal connection when she auditioned for the video to his brilliant new single Naked.

And James admits there was “chemistry” between the pair on set.

Speaking in the new episode of my Bizarre Life podcast, he told me: “The timing was perfect for us, we get a little bit of extra press.

“I had no idea. I’ve met Harry and WILL and KATE at a mental health dinner one time and thought they were super cool. I spoke to Harry in depth about mental health and thought, ‘Lovely guy’.

“Obviously I know of the Royal Family, but I don’t know about MISS MARKLE, I’ve recently become educated on the whole thing but Cressida auditioned for the video and she smashed it and that’s why she did it.

X Factor star James Arthur reveals the pair had chemistry on the set of the music video
James said he was unaware of Cressida Bonas’ royal connections when she auditioned for the video

“Nothing about her profile that got her the job, it was her supreme acting ability.”

The video sees James play a talk show host who falls for Cressida, his interview subject.

He said: “There was chemistry there. I have genuine aspirations of being an actor.

“In order to convey that on screen, you’ve got to have those thoughts and embody that feeling.

James Arthur said Cressida sounded ‘posh’ on set and he was having ‘banter’ with her

“I was trying to have a spark with her and we had a spark. It was good. She was really professional, really talented. I believe she’s got a boyfriend.”

That said, James still playfully flirted with Cressida on set. He recalled: “She sounded posh. I was having a bit of crack with her. My banter’s like, ‘Oh you’re a royal are you?’”

Despite being in a long-term on/off relationship with dancer Jessica Grist, James admits on the podcast, which you can download now for free by searching for Bizarre Life on iTunes or Apple Podcasts, that women remain his weakness. He said with a wry smile: “It’s been an addiction and probably the hardest addiction of them all.

“It’s one I think I’ll struggle with until the day I die. RUSSELL BRAND says it the best. It becomes draining pursuing multiple women. That’s been the hardest thing for me.”

James believes his tough background, which saw him spend time in foster homes, is responsible for his attitude.

He explained: “The sex addiction thing was a real addiction at one point. It probably boils down to some deep psychological thing for me that at a very vital time in my life my parents didn’t step up.

“I love both my parents, but the time when I really needed them I watched them sign me over to a foster care.

“There are many reasons for that, and I forgive them for it, and I understand it now in hindsight, but I think that led to a deep need for validation from women.

People dubbed the casting of Cressida Bonas the same week of Prince Harry’s engagement announcement as a publicity stunt

“I love the affection. It’s not there as much as it used to be, I’m growing up now, I’m getting on and I see now it’s all about self-love and you’re not going to gain much from constantly looking outside yourself for validation.”

James also says he has forgiven RITA ORA after she broke his heart as his fame faded after winning The X Factor in 2012. He said: “The Rita Ora situation, seeing multiple women, perhaps I didn’t feel I’d met my equal.

“Then here came Rita Ora who’s a powerful woman, a talented woman, a business woman, independent and inspiring and I was in awe of her.

“We had a good time together and I still have huge respect for her.

“We are friends now, I said some negative things about her that were probably out of jealousy or frustration that I f***ed that situation up.”

But this time he is making it work with stunning Jess, who he describes as a “best friend for life”.

He said of his girlfriend: “Right now, the situation I’m in I’m happy with. Jess is someone who has been a rock for me, she’s been through hell, I’ve put her through hell to be honest.

“She’s a great woman and we’ve been on and off for periods of time.


“We’re on at the moment, but she doesn’t really like the whole limelight thing.”

A NEW JIMI HENDRIX album featuring unreleased tracks by the late rock legend has been announced. Ten unheard songs penned between 1968 and 1970 will feature on Both Sides Of The Sky, released on March 18.

JAMES credits Bizarre with helping to launch his comeback.

Our interview and Facebook Live last September helped convince SIMON COWELL to re-sign the singer to his Syco label.

James said: “Thank you – you were a big part of the comeback.

“That interview went a long way to helping people understand me.

“It showed people I was still humble and had learnt from my mistakes, and that I’m just here to make some honest music and hopefully inspire some people.

“What’s happened in the last year is incredible. Tours and lots of new music. I’m in a really good place.”

James says Simon provided hope when was at his lowest.

He explained: “I don’t know whether it was him fearing the worst – that I was the guy people knew was suicidal.

“I was giving up on everything. Maybe he heard about that and he wanted to give me a little bit of hope.

“If that’s the case, he’s a big part of my story – he came good. Now we have a relationship where it’s super-transparent. It’s honest and real.”

APPLE has revealed the year’s most popular apps, music, movies and more on its outlets. The 2017 list sees ED SHEERAN nab Apple Music and iTunes’ Top Album of 2017 and his single Shape Of You scooped Top Song.

GOING cold turkey is how James finally kicked his addiction to booze, drugs and ­prescription pills.

He revealed: “I could have gone down a really bad road with drugs and addiction – it’s well ­documented that I struggled.


“I’m not going to discourage people from taking anti-depressants because that might work for them.

“But for me, being an addict and having these things at my disposal, it was dangerous.”

A constant fear of dying eventually drove James to give it all up. He explained: “It sounds really simple and daft, but I just got absolutely sick to the back teeth of thinking I was going to die.

“I convinced myself I was going to die. I had all the symptoms of an impending heart attack, all the time.


“It was crippling, it was really tough for me to face simple social situations. I couldn’t leave the house, I was scared to go to the shop.

“I just had to change, I had to do ­something. It was the hardest thing I ever did. I just tried cutting everything out.”

JAMES was facing bankruptcy before his comeback – and couldn’t afford to go to therapy sessions. He said: “I was like £200,000 in debt. It would have cost me hundreds of pounds for a session.”

JACK WHITEHALL is not afraid to mock celebrities.

And now he’s got the chance to seriously rib major A-listers after being announced as the host of next year’s Brit Awards.

Jack Whitehall will be stepping to host the iconic British music awards which has been fronted by James Corden and Emma Willis

The comedian takes over from DERMOT O’LEARY and EMMA WILLIS, who were drafted in earlier this year to replace MICHAEL BUBLE who sadly had to pull out weeks before the ­February ceremony after his young son was diagnosed with liver cancer.

Jack won’t need to go far for presenting tips as his close pal and A League Of Their Own co-star JAMES CORDEN has hosted the Brits four times on his own.

Jack said: “I’m thrilled to be hosting the Brits.

“It’s the kind of show you dream of hosting as a kid, so I’m really excited to have been asked.”

The comedian says he dreamed of hosting the Brits when he was a child

The comedian, who has been crowned the King of Comedy by The British Comedy Awards three years in a row, hosted the Fashion Awards in ­London on Monday alongside model KARLIE KLOSS.

The 29-year-old also fronted Bafta’s Britannia Awards at the Beverly Hilton hotel in October.

Jack is a great choice, and no star will be safe from his acid tongue.

BEING the father of three kids, NOEL ­GALLAGHER is prob- ably used to being filmed unawares.

But it’s unlikely he would have expected a couple of teenagers he was chatting to backstage at a GORILLAZ gig to secretly film him holding a large bag of green herbs and post the footage online.

Backstage sources claim Noel Gallagher asked to be passed the vaporiser but was not seen smoking backstage at the Gorillaz concert

The caption on the clip, above, posted on Instagram, read: “Noel chavved my weed.”

Noel, who performed on stage with former BritPop rival DAMON ALBARN – the frontman of the animated band – also asked to be passed a vaporiser but wasn’t seen smoking anything at London’s O2 Arena.

A source backstage said: “Noel was just really chilled out with a group of kids who were the same age as his daughter.

“He wasn’t acting cool or anything and was just happy to chat about the music.

Sources claim Noel Gallagher was just being extremely friendly to a group of teens who were backstage too

“When one of them produced a bag of what appeared to be weed and a vaporiser, he was fascinated in the way they were all smoking.

“Noel took a real interest in the device and was asking a lot of questions about how it all worked.”

Earlier this year Noel’s wife Sara MacDonald played up to his wild past by laying on a cocaine-themed 50th birthday bash for him in London.

I doubt he’d celebrate with a cup of tea and a trip to the cinema.

bizmeter: how bizarre

HERE, James Arthur reveals his most Bizarre ...

  • date:  WHEN it’s awkward and you don’t know whether to eat or talk. When I was 20, I had nothing to say for myself. We went to the cinema and ­Nando’s, then the local club where it’s £1 a pint. My chat was lame.
  • showbiz party: AFTER the VMAs, it was ­surreal – KATY PERRY was there, and CALVIN HARRIS and THE WEEKND. I ­chatted to Katy. She was super-bubbly. She seemed to know who I was but she might just be good    at  pretending.
  • rider item: TOFURKY, which is the vegan equivalent to cold- cut chicken. I have no meat or dairy in my diet. I’m done with animal products. I feel good. It’s nice to see yourself looking healthier – mentally and physically.
  • celeb dream: THIS really is rocky ground. I don’t recall any dreams about ­celebrities. That’s my answer and I’m ­sticking to it.
