The two pop stars are said to have sneaked into the club through the back door so as not to be seen.

Rita Ora and James Arthur reportedly enjoyed a secret date to a strip club this week, fresh from the 'R.I.P' singer's denial the two have been dating in recent weeks.

The 'Radioactive' star and The X Factor UK 2012 winner were allegedly pictured at Silks Gentleman's Lounge in Leeds in the early hours of Wednesday morning (13th February), before leaving in separate taxis and meeting up at the same hotel.

"They were desperate not to be seen," a source told The Sun this week. "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," they explained. "He's smitten."

The two are believed to have travelled up to Leeds after their respective gigs in York and Sheffield, where James was performing as part of The X Factor live tour.

Earlier in the week the two were pictured joking around backstage on The X Factor tour during a stop in Birmingham, where Rita was also performing as part of her recently concluded 'Radioactive' UK tour.

The 'Shine Ya Light' singer has dismissed speculation about the pair's relationship, insisting James is just a friend and claiming she is currently single.

Rita Ora is nominated for three gongs at the BRIT Awards 2013 next week (20th February) including two nominations for Best British Single with Capital FM.
