The 'R.I.P.' singer does admit she thinks the 'Impossible" singer is "so cool" and "a nice guy".

Rita Ora has dismissed claims she has been dating The X Factor UK's James Arthur and has described the rising pop star as a "just a friend".

The 'Hot Right Now' singer was linked to the 'Impossible' singer recently after they were spotted hanging out together on The X Factor tour, fresh from the 2012 winner's alleged admission he has a crush on her.

However, Rita has now gone on record to say there is nothing going on between the pair and insists she is currently single.

"The X Factor had a show in Birmingham too and he's just a friend, man," Rita told The Sun. "He's so cool and a nice guy but, trust me, I would tell you if I was seeing someone."

The 'R.I.P.' singer is currently preparing to bring her 'Radioactive' UK tour to a close in Leeds tonight (13th January), and says it has been a great experience on the road.

"We've been partying on the bus," Rita revealed. "We put some music on and have a final drink of the night."
