X Factor winner James Arthur has responded to comments from the coaches on The Voice UK about his reported failure in the early rounds of the BBC competition.

will.i.am and The Script's Danny O'Donoghue were asked recently if they knew about Arthur's attempts to appear on the show's first series in 2012, and both singers claimed to never have heard of the reality TV star.

"Who's James Arthur?" asked Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am. It is not clear whether the Us popstar was mocking Arthur or if his question was genuine.

Arthur responded on Twitter to will.i.am's comments, referencing a classic Black Eyed Peas hit in his hashtag.
