Sam Smith 'Secretly Dated 'TOWIE' Star Charlie King'

Sam Smith has been enjoying a series of secret dates, with former ‘TOWIE’ star Charlie King, according to reports.

The duo are believed to have first made contact on social media, after Charlie sent a series of tweets about the Grammy-award winning singer.

A source has explained the seemingly unlikely pairing to The Sun, revealing that they’ve met up secretly on a number of occasions.

However, fans hoping to see Sam coupled up with the reality TV star look set to be disappointed, as the duo have reportedly decided they’re better off as friends.

“The pair hung out to discover if they were compatible. Friends have said nothing romantic happened because they decided they were better off as friends,” the source adds. “They enjoyed each other’s company as both are quite deep individuals. They deliberately never took any pictures together because they wanted to keep it under wraps.

“Sam’s schedule is incredibly hectic so their dates were very sporadic. They mutually decided in May that it wasn’t going to work.”

Back in January, Sam split from his boyfriend Jonathan Zeizel, just three weeks after going public with their relationship.

It’s been a hectic year for the star, and he was forced to cancel a series of tour dates, after having emergency vocal chord surgery.
