The best thing about X Factor

Harry Targett is glad he was single while on The X Factor.

The Eaton-raised 16-year-old and his group Younger Than Yesterday were eliminated from the hit reality talent search on Monday but Eaton says the opportunity was worth it - especially for being able to meet girls.

"It is pretty good being single and being on The X Factor. It would suck being in a relationship because you have all this temptation around you," he told AAA.

"It is every 16-year-old boy's dream, I reckon."

While the trained dancer left his Year 11 studies at Australind Senior High School to take part in the series, he hasn't ruled out returning to school.

"I left school because I didn't know whether I was going to come back or not," he said.

"We kind of made an agreement with the school to say if it works out I probably wouldn't be going back, but if it doesn't I can probably just pop right back into school."

But at the moment he is hoping to continue with YTY, who were put together by The X Factor judges, and pursue a career with the group, which consists of fellow 16-year-olds Ellis Hall and Joel Watson.

"I did want to see what I could do as a solo artist but I am so glad they put me into a group. If I was a solo artist at the moment I wouldn't be able to handle all of this because I don't have anyone else to rely on," Targett said.

"I am sure the other guys want to stay together and see where we can all take this. We have a good fan base going and I would really like to see how it goes.

"It would be the ultimate dream for me to move over east and do music every day with these guys."
