‘s Jack Walton has admitted that he has a tattoo of a smiley face on his bum.

The singer – who was eliminated from the competition earlier this month – said that his stepbrother inked him with a tattoo gun he bought from eBay.

Speaking to Attitude, he said: “When my mum’s partner moved in to my house with her kids, Aaron – who was the oldest – bought a tattoo gun off eBay, and it came in a box that said hair dryer on it, so you can imagine it was a bit dodgy.

“I was sat in my room playing Xbox and I heard this noise – the tattoo gun – and I went in all excited like ‘I want one, I want one!’ So he was like ‘where?’ and I said ‘Somewhere nobody can see it, just to say I’ve got one.’ He said ‘You want it on your bum, don’t you?’ and of course I was like ‘Yeah go on then!’

“So I was thinking ‘what do I want on my bum’ and decided on a smiley face, so every time I get my bum out it just makes people happy.”
