The pair set some serious tongues wagging earlier this week when they partied together at the 'X Factor' live after party at the LG Arena in Birmingham on Saturday.
And now they have enjoyed another evening together at Silks Gentlemen's Lounge in Leeds, before they headed back to a nearby hotel, albeit in separate cabs.
According to The Sun, Rita travelled from York after a gig, while James came down from the 'X Factor' tour in Sheffield.
“James made a big effort to spend time with her. He’s smitten.”
Rita broke up with boyfriend Robert Kardashian before Christmas and recently proclaimed she had 'no time for men'.
Pete Burns and Lil Kim
We can't imagine what these two would have in common...
Joey Essex and Helen Flanagan
We're sure they'd have deep intellectual debates about Iraq and the economic crisis.
Tom Daley and Cheryl Cole
Cheryl may be blissfully in love with Tre, but Tom's already said he is willing to Fight for Her Love.
Jodie Marsh and Leoandro Penna
It wouldn't be the first time Jodie has snared one of Katie Price's exes...
Harry Styles and Nick Grimshaw
Surely it is just a matter of time before bromance turns into romance?
Kerry Katona and Alex Reid
A match perfectly made for a magazine deal.
Taylor Swift and Russell Brand
Surely there isn't one celeb left that either of them haven't dated?
Cara Delevigne and Eddie Redmayne
Their children would have the perfect lips and the bushiest eyebrows. Oh, and they'd have a kick ass double-barrelled surname.
Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen
They certainly wouldn't be a good influence on each other, but there is no denying they are kindred spirits.
Simon Cowell and David Walliams
All that flirtation on 'Britain's Got Talent' has got to mean something, right?
Louis Smith and Kelly Brook
Louis is looking for his dream lady, Kelly loves nothing more than sporty toyboys. What exactly are they waiting for?
Selena Gomez and Niall Horan
Selena loves a teen pop sensation, and with Niall being the love-term singleton of One Direction it seems only natural that these two should get it on.
Nicki Minaj and Ortise Williams
She previously turned him down, but we reckon it's high time that she gives him One Shot.
Alan Carr and Gok Wan
We can't believe they're not together already!
