Time up for Kingsland Road - Arthur

James Arthur who has suggested boy band Kingsland Road should be given the boot from the X Factor because they leave him 'cringing'

X Factor winner James Arthur has suggested boy band Kingsland Road should be given the boot from the ITV talent show because they leave him "cringing".

The 24-year-old singer, who topped the charts with Impossible, is currently promoting his first release since he was on the show and aired his views about the group on Twitter, but they were later deleted.

He wrote: " 'I'm sorry but this Kingsland Road have me cringing to the max, they aren't good enough. Their time must come to an end this Sunday."

After removing the remarks, he grumbled about the abusive comments he continually receives, saying: "B ullies I have to deal with on a day to day basis is incredible. Little hard to get too big for your boots when all you get is s***."

Arthur - who is releasing his single You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You on Sunday - later told his fans he was in mourning for a member of his family.

"I'll be grieving the loss of my Nanna Isobelle this weekend and hopefully celebrating a hit on Sunday for her."
