The X Factor finalist is single and having fun

You probably remember Eoghan Quigg as a chubby-cheeked 16-year-old.

He came third on 2008’s X Factor and got very close to co-finalist Diana Vickers.

So are they still in contact?

‘I was in touch with everyone, but I lost my phone three years back and haven’t spoken to them since,’ Eoghan tells us.

The Irish cutie has just broken up with his girlfriend of three years and is getting a lot of female attention. But he’s waiting to meet the perfect Cheryl Cole lookalike.

‘When I go out to clubs and pubs, girls come up to me and want pictures,’ he reveals.

‘All my friends love it. It’s very flattering.

‘I’ve always gone for brunettes.

‘But I want someone I can have a conversation with – a girl who’s funny and can take a joke.’
