Rita Ora had quite a messy breakup from Rob Kardashian only a matter of weeks ago but it seems though she is already moving on.

The ‘RIP’ hitmaker first met James Arthur when she took part in The X Factor last year and at the weekend the blonde beauty was spotted getting close to the winner of the ITV show in Birmingham.

Rita had already been to see stars in London’s O2 Arena last week, when she bumped in One Direction’s Liam Payne and hung with him as they watched the former contestants and of course his girlfriend Danielle Peazer perform.

However, she rejoined the ‘Impossible’ singer at the X Factor live afterparty at the LG Arena on Saturday night as she was performing her own gig in the city and insiders told The Sun that James made his move, having harboured a crush on the star since he first met her in 2012.

Rita was rocking a knockout outfit, dressed head to toe in red leather so it’s easy to see why James was so excited and the pair obviously had a lot of catching up to do as Arthur was reportedly seen leavin her hotel the next morning.

We can’t help but wonder what Caroline Flack will think of the hookup, after all it was thought that the Xtra Factor beauty was dating the Northern singer, after they were spotted out having dinner and drinks on a number of occasions.

James seemed to enjoy his time in the city and tweeted on Saturday saying:

“Great show in Birmingham! Lovin the noise #LOVE”

Meanwhile, Rita has confirmed that she was asked to join the X Factor judging panel on a full time basis for 2013, but revealed that she turned down the offer as she wanted to continue working on her own music career for now.
