Is James Arthur still single?

X Factor finalist James Arthur has sparked rumours that he’s back with ex-girlfriend Lucie Poole after she comforted him over his panic attack on Saturday night.

Lucie was in the audience to see James, 24, perform before he collapsed behind the scenes and she returned to see him make it through on Sunday’s results show.

‘Me and the best guy in the world scoffing maccyd’s after the results! @JamesArthur23 #TeamJamesArthur,’ Tweeted Lucie after the programme, along with a photo of the pair together.

James split with Lucie, 18, when he got to the X Factor live shows, reportedly because he was too busy to maintain a relationship.

Lucie told her Twitter followers yesterday that she and James are ‘just friends’ but describes him as her ‘main man’ on her page description.

James and Lucie‘s split was very amicable and there are obviously still a lot of feelings there,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘He had a tough weekend and Lucie has been there for him through it all.’
