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'.
