This is an unlikely pairing

He recently landed a cushy new job in LA, presenting for the showbiz news show, Extra.

Now it looks like Mark Wright could be preparing to move in with a very unlikely pal – X Factor winner James Arthur!

James has spent a fair amount of time across the pond while touring, and is said to be a big fan.

He told The Mirror Online that he and Mark got chatting at a Los Angeles hotel, and hit it off so much that the topic of sharing an LA pad came up over drinks.

“It was a random one,” he said.

“I recorded a special feature at The Standard hotel in Los Angeles.

“I was sitting by the pool waiting to hear it back when Mark came over and we had a couple of glasses of whisky.

“He is such a lovely, down to earth guy.

“We talked about hanging out and sharing a flat.

“It would be a pretty cool flat.”

However, James has tough competition if he wants to be besties with Mark.
