Holly has 'confessed' to fancying James Arthur.

This Morning's Holly Willoughby has admitted to having a crush on X Factor contestant James Arthur.

The married host's confession came while she interviewed The Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack about last weekend's show.

Holly told how it was James' rendition of the Motown classic Let's Get it On which really won her over.

She told Flack: "It was so good. When he performed Let's Get It On - I was watching it going, 'I now really fancy you' - it was amazing!"

Caroline agreed immediately with Holly's opinion: "In my opinion, his performance was one of the best X Factor performances I've ever seen.

"When I found out that he was doing that song, I knew that he was going to nail it and I was really excited all week for Saturday to see him do it."

As well as discussing Holly's hots for James, Caroline defended Liverpudlian singer Christopher Maloney, who has attracted negative press, been booed by the studio audience and even quit twitter after receiving death threats via the social media site.

Caroline explained how she thought the boos were actually winning him “the sympathy vote” and had likely to have contributed to him not having been in the bottom two at any point in this year's competition.
