Nathan Sykes: I'm too shy to date

Nathan Sykes gets "really shy" when he fancies a girl.

The 'Kiss Me Quick' hitmaker - who dated Ariana Grande for four months in 2013 - becomes nervous and very timid when he meets a beautiful woman he wants to romance and he's not a great dater.

The 22-year-old star shared: "I'm really, really shy. So whenever I see someone that I really like I go all giggly. And I'm just like... (sucks in breath)."

Speaking of how he gets around his dating difficulties, he added: "I'm really bad at dating. I don't date. You know what it is? I always become friends with whoever I'm dating first, so it kinda just falls into being a relationship, kinda just, trip and fall into. 'Oh we're dating now. Brilliant!' I'm not one of those people who says, 'Oh are we going on a date now?' Because they can go, 'Oh ... I don't really know.'

But the former member of 'The Wanted' isn't focused on love, because his new single 'Over And Over Again' is rising in the charts.

Speaking on UK TV show 'Loose Women', he gushed: "After 'X Factor' on Sunday I flew into LA the Monday morning to film something Monday night and I flew back yesterday. But when I landed in LA, the first thing I did was go to the charts.

"I gave this poor lady the fright of her life, because I'd been asleep for the whole flight, and I just opened my phone, and went 'Yeaaah!!!' And it was 4am. This poor lady, she went, 'Is everything alright love?' And I was like, 'Yeah I'm brilliant!! Do not worry about me, I'm fine!' "
