Is ‘The Voice’ coach Rita Ora the safest bet for the next ‘X-Factor’ judge?
With rumours rife that Rita Ora is about to jump ship from ‘The Voice’ to ‘The X-Factor’, the singer has been given a shining endorsement from one half of the show’s new hosting duo, Olly Murs. Murs will be hosting the talent show’s new season alongside presenter Caroline Flack, but before it gets underway there’s the little matter of who will be joining the judging panel to sort out.
Rita Ora is hotly tipped to become the next ‘X-Factor’ judge.
Ora has become the hot contender to replace Mel B on the panel even though she’ll be coming straight from rival talent show BBC One's ‘The Voice’. Speaking to The Mirror during Capital's Summertime Ball, Murs addressed the rumours that Rita was about to sign on for the new series saying, "I'll be honest. I think Rita would be a good one because she's done The Voice.”

Caroline Flack is an accomplished presenter, a perfect ten Strictly scorer and a bit of a fashion front runner as well but, despite all this, it seems the three-months she chose to spend dating a then 17-year-old Harry Styles may be the one thing that she finds she can’t quite ever shake off.

What is it about London's Groucho Club that has celebrities returning week-in-week-out? Harry Styles, the youngest member of One Direction, turns 19-years-old today (January 31, 2013) and chose London's hippest venue as the place to party with ex-girlfriends Caroline Flack and Cara Devalinge and pals James Corden and Nick Grimshaw on Thursday evening. The boys had started the evening at a Mexican restaurant, but all roads led to London's most infamous hangout - an unassuming members' club in the heart of London's Soho district.
Caroline Flack turned up wearing a red fur jacket and some futuristic heels, while Cara opted for leather trousers and a striped jacket following an appearance at Burberry's bash at their flagship store in Regent Street. Harry and Caroline have been close since they dated for three-months when he was 17, with the Xtra Factor presenter describing him as "brilliant and so much fun." On Thursday, Styles opted for a weird looking shiny blazer, while Radio 1 breakfast DJ Grimshaw went for a fitted black jacket. In all fairness, Corden was probably the best dressed of the guys, in jeans, a shirt and smart sweater.
James Arthur is currently the King of X Factor and celebrating having sold over one million copies of his debut single, 'Impossible,' but it looks like the endless party since his meteoric rise to the top might have to take a back seat after his last night out ended with him being questioned by police: so they could let him into his house.
Yes, Arthur went and committed the ultimate brain fart last night and forgot to take his keys out with him, leaving him stranded out in the blistering cold for nearly half an hour whilst he waited for police to arrive and help him in. Poor guy, luckily though, there weren't any fans around to pester the singer, as he recently admitted that he gets "freaked out" by his fans in an interview with ITN.
Hapless Arthur had been spending the night mingling with the likes of JLS and One Direction at the pre-Brits party in central London, before he and his 'friend' Caroline Flack headed off to the glitzy Groucho Club alone together for a few drinks. After geting a cab home alone, things went from bad to worse as he was left with a red face, both from embarrassment and the cold, after finding out he'd left his keys at home. At least he didn't end up pulling Flack, now that would have been awkward.
James Arthur showed off his latest tattoo while out and about in London this week. The X Factor winner, who had a number one hit with a cover of Shontelle's Impossible, revealed the tattoo while partying with The Xtra Factor host Caroline at London's exclusive Groucho Club, reports Capital FM.
James - a big fan of body art - has King Arthur tattooed on his hand. Speaking about his latest inking, the Middlesbrough singer said, "[It's] King Arthur look! Yeah, well it's more like I was a pauper and now I'm fulfilling my purpose so I feel like a king." He also has the words "love" and "hate" tattooed on his knuckles. Though James seemed to be having a whale of a time with friend Caroline, the night didn't end too successfully. The 24-year-old headed to a local shop to pick up some cigarettes before making his way home, only to find he had forgotten his keys! The singer was eventually helped out by passing police officers, who came to the rescue.
Though Arthur has made no secret of his love for the opposite sex, it seems there's only one woman for him. Tweeting on Thursday (January 24, 2012), he said, "Any time I catch a glimpse of my video for impossible i always really miss @NicoleScherzy best mentor/women I've ever met #LOVE."

Wow. If the world weren't convinced by Harry Styles and Taylor Swift's reported romance, they sure are now. In potentially the most public kiss of all time, the boy-band star and the chart topping country star smooched in Times Square at midnight on New Year's Eve. Thousands watched on, while plenty more have since watched the video on YouTube.
According to the Daily Mail, the couple had started the evening apart, though Styles made it to Manhattan just in time to catch Taylor's performance in Times Square. Afterwards, the lovebirds hailed a cab back to their hotel and looked pretty happy as they held hands and entered the foyer. British star Harry clearly hadn't had time to drop off his bags having gone straight from the airport to the Coldplay and Jay Z concert at the Barclays Center earlier in the evening. Swift had begun the evening by heading out to dinner with brother Austin. The Red singer looked typically stylish in a thick brown winter coat and flat back shoes, later changing into leather trousers and a sparkly jacket for the live performance. "So excited to be in New York playing on @OfficialNYRE! It all starts at 8pm ET on ABC. Can't. even. verbalize. how stoked I am for 2013!" she tweeted.
Harry began dating Taylor last month, following reported relationships with Cara Delevigne, Lily Halpern and Caroline Flack.
Olly Murs may have scored a No.1 single this week - beating Girls Aloud to the top spot - though it seems it may not be enough to bag his Xtra Factor co-star Caroline Flack, who he's reportedly had his eyes on for months. James Arthur, a semi-finalist on this year's x factor competition, had admitted having a soft-spot for the ITV2 presenter.
He told New Magazine, "I think she's attractive, she's funny," adding, "I'd definitely take her out for a drink." However, James insisted that nothing would happen between the pair while he's still competing on the show. He explained, "I've got her number. If we do text each other it's a friendship thing..She's really nice, she is professional and she really wouldn't cross any mark in terms of speaking to any contestants differently to anyone else." Flack has a history of dating contestants on the show, having begun a relationship with One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles before facing a ferocious backlash from fans of the band. Flack was mobbed by the paparazzi for weeks before making a plea for One Direction Twitter fans to stop sending her death threats.
We're not sure whether James Arthur's online fan-base is as hard-core as the 1D followers, though we're pretty sure Caroline Flack would be the envy of even more teenage girls. Oh oh.
