'X Factor' Eoghan Quigg shows off abs and tatts in new photos

By
Former X Factor sweetheart Eoghan Quigg has shown off an impressive new physique and tattoos in a surprising photoshoot with Now magazine.

The 20-year-old explained that he has been boxing to buff up and prove that he is no longer "that wee boy" who finished third in X Factor's 2008 series.

"I've got a lot taller and my hair's shorter. I'm not as chubby as I used to be," he said, revealing: "I once boxed in an Irish championship."

Quigg also suggested that he would have preferred to enter The X Factor now rather than in his teenage years.

Asked if he regretted taking part in the show, he replied: "Not one bit. I had the best time of my life. The only thing I'd say is, it might have been better if I was the age I am now.

"I was the youngest ever to get to the final. One Direction came after me. I was so young I didn't really understand what was going on."

Quigg went on to admit that he still gets plenty of female attention due to his X Factor stint - even though he is holding out for a romance with his former judge Cheryl Cole or 2011 winners Little Mix.

"When I go out to clubs and pubs, girls come up to me and want pictures," he stated.

"All my friends love it. It's very flattering... I do [want to settle down], but stuff like having kids is a long, long way away."
