Former X Factor star and JLS singer Oritsé Williams has been arrested and questioned by police, following an allegation of rape.

A 20-year-old woman claims an attack took place in a hotel room in Wolverhampton following a gig.

She and a female friend reportedly spent time at the hotel with Oritsé and one of his friends, before leaving to catch a taxi home.

The alleged victim then, apparently, realised that she had left her bag at the hotel and returned to collect it.
