The singer had the hots for Spanish singer Ruth

JLS‘s Oritse Williams has revealed that he had a secret relationship with Ruth Lorenzo when they were both contestants on The X Factor.

Oritse, 26, and Ruth, 31, managed to keep their romance under wraps during filming of the show in 2008 – although they chose a risky place for their hook-ups.

‘In the bed opposite Alexandra Burke,’ confesses Oritse.

Alex knew but she kept it a secret. I felt bad about that!’

Oritse – who’ll embark on JLS‘s farewell tour next month – is now loved-up with girlfriend AJ Azari and the pair won ITV‘s dance show Stepping Out together in September.

He’s ready to settle down with AJ, 28 – and is definitely over Spanish-born Ruth.

‘[AJ and I] were friends for four years and then just over a year ago we made the transition,’ Oritse tells Fabulous.

‘I’d always secretly fancied her, but part of me wanted to enjoy being single first, and I’ve definitely done that! But she’s the only girl for me now.’
