James Arthur has proved he’s still the sweetest and cuddliest man in pop, after uploading a photo to his Instagram page looking generally worse for wear after getting into a fight in Poland.

The ‘X Factor’ winner shared a picture of his face with his Instagram followers which showed his nose had been cut in the scuffle, adding: “Polish bar brawls are the best.”

James Arthur shows his war wounds off to his followers

While James didn’t provide any other information about who else was in the fight or what provoked it all to kick off, he did assure his followers that he wasn’t seriously injured, joking that “boys will be boys” and tweeting...

“Boys will be boys”? That may be true, James but we don’t see any other ‘X Factor’ winners getting into any scraps. Why not take a leaf out of Joe McElderry’s book and - rather than getting in bar fights - just tweet about running all day long?

James recently revealed that getting into a relationship with his new girlfriend Jessica Grist had given him a new attitude… though clearly he hasn’t quite mellowed enough to keep himself out of trouble just yet.

Of course, James no longer has to worry about keeping in line for Simon Cowell’s sake, as the music mogul and ‘X Factor’ boss "axed" James from his label earlier this year, with the singer confirming the news that he was no longer with Syco on his Twitter page.

The label departure was a long time coming after a string of incidents landed James in hot water with the general public, which he’s since admitted that he has some “regrets” about.
