X-factor contestant James Arthur has found himself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons after winning the talent show two years ago, but now it seems that the 26-year-old is attempting to reinvent himself with a change of image.
His previous scruffy appearance might have won him some fans on the reality show but James told reporters that he has never liked his crooked teeth and immediately after his victory he began orthodontic treatment to straighten them out. As well as dealing with his misalignments, the singer stepped out this week with a new hair style and a striking tan that certainly got the attention of the viewers as he performed his new single on This Morning.
More noticeable than his hair do, his teeth were obviously without their braces and looking much straighter. James took to twitter to let his followers know that he was still undergoing dental treatment for the perfect smile, saying ‘I just got my top braces off which is nice. Looking forward to the dentist working on them now they are straight.’ This appeared to be one of his milder tweets, as the singer has become known for his controversial posts and disagreements with other famous twitter users, as well as fellow X-factor contestants. He has left the social networking site several times but has now been tempted back as he tries to re-establish himself on the music scene.
