James Arthur and Rita Ora

X Factor winner James Arthur has the hots for Rita Ora according to reports, with insiders saying a romance has been blossoming between the two stars since last month.

Arthur first met Ora during the X Factor final in December when she performed live on the show and the pair have been exchanging flirty text messages since.

“James is a big fan of Rita,” a source close to the Impossible singer revealed to The Sun this week.

“He has already exchanged a few texts with her and is hoping it might lead to something more.

“They’ve been flirting a bit and having a laugh,” they added. “But it’s still very early days.”

It’s not the first time we’ve heard of a possible romance as last month Now magazine revealed how James was smitten with Rita after meeting her backstage at the X Factor.

“He was quite taken with Rita after Saturday’s show,” a source told the magazine in December. “They were getting very chatty backstage and exchanged numbers.

“He seemed interested in getting to know her better.”
