Greg’s run­ning scared

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ EX­CLU­SIVE by JAMES ING­HAM

BUSKER Gre­gor Cole­man reck­ons be­ing punched and robbed by drunken pun­ters is less scary than au­di­tion­ing for The X Fac­tor.

The Glas­gow singer has been at­tacked sev­eral times by yobs.

The wannabe, who has been a street per­former for two years, said: “Drunk guys some­times want to fight.

“It is scary but it’s just part of the job. It gives you a thick skin.”

Gre­gor was asked to sing for a sec­ond time by show boss Si­mon Cow­ell be­fore go­ing through to boot camp.

Re­veal­ing the whole ex­pe­ri­ence added to his anx­i­ety, he said: “Per­form­ing for the judges was a lot more ter­ri­fy­ing than get­ting at­tacked by drunks. “I was OK when I ar­rived but you do so many in­ter­views while you are wait­ing. I got so ner­vous and just ended up wind­ing my­self up all day. These are the peo­ple who can de­cide if you have a ca­reer or not.”

The tat­too-lover is des­per­ate to win and get a record­ing con­tract. He added: “I would hap­pily get Si­mon Cow­ell’s face tat­tooed on my face if he said I would win. “I’ll prob­a­bly get some­thing of Ni­cole though in­stead.”
