It's not really a surprise for anyone who watched her as a coach on The Voice UK! The 'Shine Ya Light' singer was famed for flirting up a storm with the singing hopefuls.
Now preparing to make her debut as a judge on The X Factor, Rita told The Sun: "Even when I am at home I really play on the flirty thing. I do it because it makes them feel uncomfortable.
"If you can handle me flirting, you can handle being on The X Factor."
Well, there you have it!
Rita sits on this year's panel alongside fellow newbie and close friend Nick Grimshaw. They take their place next to Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Simon Cowell.
The X Factor returns to ITV later this year.
