One, in particular, he says left him struggling to control his sexual urges.

The singer confessed to a stint of “magical” nights with Rita Ora while on The X Factor tour and says it left him in a bad place when it ended.

In parts of the books shared in The Sun On Sunday, James revealed how Rita went from telling him she loved him to ignoring him completely.

When the relationship broke down, James said he struggled to deal with it and became addicted to sex.

“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,” he admitted in the book.

“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 on Twitter, and I started to sleep with so many of them I lost count.”

The singer admitted that he turned to sex line services like Babestation or glamour models for comfort.

James said the breakdown of the relationship led to a long spell of one-night stands and panic attacks before he sought help.
