Screenshots obtained by the publication show the 27-year-old Liverpudlian sending the inappropriate messages and images, with the mum in question also saying he persisted despite her begging to stop.

Controversial: X Factor favourite Anthony Russell has reportedly bombarded a young mum with sexual text messages and videos, according to The Sunday People 

The 28-year-old mum – who chose not to be identified – said: ‘He’s out of order. I told him at least three times to stop but he just kept on sending them. It was disgusting.’

In the alleged messages Anthony could be seen posting snaps and videos of his manhood, and continuing despite the mum asking him to stop.

Following this revelation the singer issued an apology, telling MailOnline: ‘Myself and this girl have known each other since we were at school 20 years ago. 

‘We got back in touch and both exchanged mobile phone messages over the summer and I had dinner with her at her house in September. 

‘I’m sorry if I’ve upset her or caused any offence, that was obviously never my intention. We were last in contact last month and everything was friendly then.’

It comes after Anthony returned to the show this year after being forced to drop out of the 2017 series, as he had been struggling with a drug addiction.

After eventual mentor Louis Tomlinson paid for his rehab treatment, Anthony has blown away the panel and viewers, with Simon Cowell recently tipping him as a potential finalist.

On Saturday’s Big Band Week quarter-final Anthony belted out the hit song Beyond The Sea, to a thunderous reception from viewers and the judging panel.

Louis said: ‘I’m so proud of you.

‘I thought it was important that you sing this song tonight cause people see how long you’ve been fighting for this opportunity.

‘You’re a fighter, you’re a real man, you’re working class, and I love you to pieces.’
