James Arthur has sensationally opened up about his sex life in his new autobiography, claiming that a fling with former X Factor judge Rita Ora turned him into a “sex addict” who would sleep with Babestation models up to three times a day.

The 2012 X Factor winner has confessed that he would contact hundreds of women online, with an addiction to cannabis also having an impact on his promiscuity.

James’ autobiography ‘Back To The Boy’ is currently being serialised by The Sun, and the 29-year-old star has claimed that singer Rita went from proclaiming her love for him to ignoring his calls, confessing that he became “a bit of a slag” after his fling with Rita, which started after a “magical” night on her tour bus.

He writes: “I started bingeing on sex. I became as addicted to sex as I was to weed. I craved sex, I had to have it and I needed it to fill the void and make myself feel better.

“If I’m honest, I became a bit of a slag after Rita. I was chatting to hundreds of women online or on Whats-App after swapping numbers with them via Twitter, and I started to sleep with so many of them I lost count.”

James also admitted that he would go for “Babestation girls or glamour models”, adding that after he was famously dropped from his record company, Syco, he was at his lowest.

James eventually sought help for his addictions and increasing panic attacks, eventually being resigned by Syco and landed a number one single and platinum album in his impressive career comeback.

James’ autobiography, ‘Back To The Boy’, is out on October 5.
