James Arthur, the winner of The X Factor UK in 2012, has been hoping for a comeback since getting dropped from Simon Cowell’s record label.
There were plans for him to appear on rapper Professor Green’s forthcoming album.
But then, after Arthur released a diss track laden with homophobic slurs including ‘You fucking queer’, he was removed from the record.
Speaking to Digital Spy, he said: ‘He just kind of imploded, didn’t he? It’s a shame, when I met him he was a cool guy but he just upset so many people.
