Nicholas McDonald may have finished second fiddle to Sam Bailey on last year’s series of The X Factor, but the budding star has revealed that he is having THE best time on tour.

However, it would seem like the one of the best parts of the tour for Nicky would be the two-night stop in Dublin as he loves the Irish accent.

It’s safe to say that no matter where the tour goes, Nicholas will have a line of girls queuing around the block to see him.

Writing on his Twitter profile, Nicky’s peeps said: “#Dublin for 2 nights… yes! #xfactortour Nicky LOVES the Irish accent! #NickyHQ”.

The 17-year-old who is gearing up to release his debut single and album later this year has also added that being on tour is ‘electric’ and he’s loving every minute of it.

The X Factor Tour goes off to Glasgow next week, which will no doubt be the highlight of the entire tour for Nicky as the homecoming crowd at the SSE Hydro is set to be crazy.

But, little Nicky Blue-Eyes (in the words of Nicole Scherzinger) is very busy at the moment as although he may have finished in runner-up position on the show, he’s preparing his debut album for release.

The star’s debut single ‘Answerphone’ will drop on the same day as his album ‘In The Arms of An Angel’ on March 17.

The video has already been shot for the single as he tweeted earlier this month: “AND THAT’S A WRAP !!! MUSIC VIDEO FOR ANSWERPHONE IS ALL DONE !! NOW LETS HOPE ALL THAT HARD WORK WAS WORTH IT #answerphone !!! (sic)”.
