Rita Ora has been on a secret date to a strip club with 'X Factor' winner James Arthur.

The 'Shine Ya Light' hitmaker spent four hours with the British talent show star at Silks Gentlemen's Lounge in Leeds, West Yorkshire, yesterday (13.02.13) before departing out of the back door in the early hours, and the 'Impossible' singer is said to be ''smitten'' with the blonde beauty.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''They were desperate not to be seen.

''They entered the strip club via the back door and left separately to avoid being snapped together.

''James made a big effort to spend time with her. He's smitten.''

Rita - who previously dated Rob Kardashian - met James in York following a gig in the city as part of her 'Radioactive' tour.

The 24-year-old star had travelled from his 'X Factor Live' performance in Sheffield to the nearby Yorkshire city to meet his latest love.

But it's not the first time Rita and James - who has previously been linked to TV presenter Caroline Flack, who hosts 'The X Factor' spin-off show 'The Xtra Factor' - have enjoyed a night out together.

On Saturday (09.02.13), the pair were spotted at an after-show party following James' 'X Factor Live' gig in Birmingham, West Midlands, and the talent show winner was pictured leaving her hotel the next morning dressed in same clothes he had been wearing the previous night.
