She said: “The X Factor rumours – and others – have been going on for three years now. They’re not a new thing. It is very complimentary, of course. A massive compliment.

“Watching a bidding war going on makes me feel special. I’m not going to get in to whether I have been made an offer – I’m not going to go there – but it is nice to even be rumoured to be in the running.”

Rita, who is currently dating Ricky Hil, also spoke about how her new single Poison is based on her personal experiences.

“Poison is very much about how I feel right now,” she explained. “It is about relationships and all the experiences I have gone through recently. I do do that too. I don’t just write party songs.”
