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' 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.
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!
