Rita Ora and Ricky Wilson were reportedly “very flirty” during a taping of The Voice UK. The Radioactive singer is the newest coach on the TV singing competition, joining Tom Jones and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky on the panel. And during a blind audition taping held in Manchester, it’s claimed Rita and Ricky were demonstrably affectionate with each other.
'They had a chat in between takes where they were holding on to each other’s arms, too'
“It was very flirty, but to make sure it wasn’t taken the wrong way he then kissed Tom Jones on the cheek too,” an alleged audience member told British newspaper The Mirror.
“They had a chat in between takes where they were holding on to each other’s arms, too. They’ve clearly hit it off.”
It’s said the frisky behaviour was even more apparent behind the scenes.
The publication states Ricky even described their heavy flirtation in detail to one contestant.
“You should have seen me before I came out, Rita was putting oil on me,” he’s quoted as saying.
"She said ‘smell this’... She was putting oil on me.”
Apparently Rita was equally open about being coquettish with Ricky.
The star is said to have giggled she was trying to “relax” him by rubbing oil into his body.
“Such a flirt,” she is quoted as cooing at Ricky.
Rita replaces Australian songstress Kylie Minogue on The Voice UK. The singer left after one season because of her music and tour commitments.
Rita (23) split from Scottish producer Calvin Harris in June after dating for about a year and she was most recently linked to Tommy Hilfiger’s son, rapper Ricky Hil.
