ok this is not as bad as you think it is and I will try and help you!
first of all how long have you and ur son's mother been seperated?
second you need to talk to ur son's mother and find out if he is like this when he is at home with her!
if he's not it could just be his way of spending more time with you kids can be quite strange that way believe me I know I have 2 myself and they will do the strangest things to get your attention.
now if your telling him off for acting this way he's gonna think to himself "hang on I'm getting my dad's attention doing this so I'll keep going" kids love attention and negitive attention is better then nothing try talking to your son and ask him why he is behaving in this manner.
you mention you have a flat mate now ur son might think that you and her are an item and that is why he is doing this also but like I said you need to find out if he dose this when at home with his mam.
