There aren't many Aussie teen stars around at the moment bigger than Reece Mastin. He won The X-Factor last year, released a hit album and single and became BFFs with Kylie Minogue!

We were lucky enough to have a quick chat with him last month when he stopped by the Take 40 studios.

We wanted to know straight away -- how is it going with the ladies? Is he kicking goals in the dating department now that he's famous? His answer surprised us!

Reece admitted: "I think I will have trouble (finding a girl)... you don't want to find someone who only likes you cos you're on the telly... so it might be a challenge."

Well there's a hot tip if you're interested in dating Reece - like him for the right reasons! We don't think Reece will have any trouble finding a girl somehow!

Watch the full chat below (including finding out who Reece's ultimate collaboration is!) and stay tuned after for an awesome acoustic performance of his hit single 'Good Night'!
