Pixie Lott has blamed her forgetful head as the reason why she snubbed James Corden when he asked her out on a date years ago.

When Pixie appeared on James' show A League Of Their Own recently, the TV presenter revealed he had asked Pixie out in the past, only to get rejected!

But now, the pretty blonde has defended her date snub, blaming her inability to remember things as the reason why she didn't reply.

After receiving a text from Gavin and Stacey star James asking her to go bowling, forgetting they had ever met, Pixie replied: "Who's this?"


But speaking to The Sun, Pixie explained she never intended for her blunt reply to be malicious.

"The thing is, I am genuinely really bad at replying to texts. I'm forgetful," she said. "James must have thought I was really rude!"

Now, looking back, Pixie admits she does remember meeting James all those years ago, but she insisted she wouldn't have wanted to get romantically involved with the 36-year-old.

"I gave him my number, but to hang out as a friend," Pixie confessed. "He's funny, He makes people laugh."

During the episode of his show that aired on 10 October, James brought up his rejection shame with Pixie.

Recalling he thought Pixie was "so into him", James asked the singer if she remembered meeting him, to which she replied she didn't.

Telling Pixie that made his story sound so much more "tragic", James revealed how Pixie had ignored his date invitation and replied asking who he was on two occasions.

A mortified Pixie was quick to apologise to James.

Beginning to remember the texts, she said: "Now you mention the bowling, I do remember. I've never been asked bowling on a date before. I did think it was a little bit strange."

Luckily now, both Pixie and James are happily loved-up with their partners.

Pixie - who is currently starring on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing - is dating her boyfriend of four years, Oliver Cheshire, while James has just welcomed his second child with wife Julia.

James and Julia - already parents to three-year-old Max - have expanded their brood with newborn daughter, Carey.

Aw, congrats!
