Austin Drage is still reeling from his shock exit from this years X Factor.

But as he waits for his time in front of Nows lens, hes more concerned about being shown up by fellow Santas Basshunter and Stuart Pilkington.

Im a bit nervous. Theres some big, muscly guys coming in and Im so tiny, he says with a laugh.

At 5ft 4in, Austin may be short in stature, but the hunky singer certainly makes up for it in the buff body stakes. Whats his fitness plan like?

Plenty of sex! Its good exercise, he reveals. His favourite Christmas memory is a little less saucy: ‘Waking up and going downstairs with my nan to open presents together.’

The star, 22,  will be spending this Christmas as a singleton, but when he does have a lady in tow, he certainly knows how to treat her right.

Im old-fashioned.  I think a date should have flowers and a nice meal. I treat a lady like a lady and Im always truthful with them, he insists.

Despite his X Factor dream being dashed, Austins not giving up on his music.

Onwards and upwards. Im still working on it. Ive had a few people approach me about record deals, but Im playing my cards close to my chest at this stage, he says.

So who does he think will win the show? Alex. Shes the most talented.
