The X Factor UK star is said to have been texting the 'R.I.P.' singer over the past month.

James Arthur is reportedly a "big fan" of Rita Ora and has been enjoying "flirting" with the UK star.

The 'Impossible' singer, who was named winner of The X Factor 2012 last month, is said to have been exchanging texts with 'R.I.P.' singer Rita after openly admitting he has a crush on her.

"James is a big fan of Rita," a source 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."

The singer-songwriter has enjoyed huge success with his winner's song from The X Factor UK after 'Impossible' made it to number one on the Vodafone Big Top 40 at the end of last year.

'Impossible' has also been nominated in the Best British Single with Capital FM category of the BRIT Awards 2013, while Rita has scored two nods for the same award with both 'R.I.P.' and 'Hot Right Now'.

This past week saw Rita travel over to Paris, France to watch her new best friend Cara Delevingne walk the catwalk for the Chanel Haute Couture show.

Rita Ora is set to kick off her 'Radioactive' UK tour with a show at the Manchester Academy on 28th January.
