He recently denied he was a womaniser but 'X Factor' star James Arthur was doing little to convince us otherwise during a night out in London last night.

The singing hopeful was spotted getting very cosy with a mystery brunette outside London's Mahiki club after buying her a rose.

Aaaaah, who said romance was dead?

James spent the night partying with the likes of Emma Watson inside the celeb haunt before catching a cab with his new lady friend at 3am.

James' sister Charlotte recently revealed that he's grown in confidence since joining the singing competition.

"The family can see that James is so, so happy now," she told the Daily Mail. "He never used to think he was attractive or that he looked like a rock star.

"But now he has lots of female fans, and he has grown in confidence so much."

Yep, looks like it.

But James insists that just because he's getting more attention doesn't mean he should be labelled as something of a lothario.

"I didn't commit any crime. I'm young and I'm single and you only live once," he told Heat magazine. "I've only been out once or twice since I've been here. I had a proper blow-out that night and got pretty drunk and probably went a bit too far.

"Unfortunately, it might have tarred me with a bit of a womaniser brush."'

And James wasn't the only 'X Factor' contestant enjoying some lady love last night.

Union J's George Shelley was also at Mahiki until the wee small hours when he was spotted leaving hand in hand with a blonde who WASN'T Ella Henderson.

The pair were linked during their time on show but it looks like George has already moved on since Ella was voted off two weeks ago.

What a fast mover!
