A source tells The Sun: “They’ve always had a soft spot for each other. Now since they are both single they have been in touch. There’s an obvious attraction between the pair of them and they’re both young and good-looking.

“They’re just fooling around at the moment and having a laugh with each other. Neither wants anything serious as they have both just come out of long-term relationships.

“Olly in particular has a lot on his plate due to his ‘X Factor’ commitments and music. But it’s one to keep an eye on.”

Diana shot to fame on ‘The X Factor’ in the fifth series in 2008 and was in a relationship with One Night Only frontman George Craig from 2011, until earlier this month.

Olly previously opened up about his heartbreak following his split from Francesca, and said during an appearance on ‘Loose Women’: “I’ve just gone through a break up with my girlfriend, which has been quite sad, quite a difficult couple of weeks.”

She recently admitted that even her mum hopes they will get together, telling Lorraine Kelly: “My mum says, ‘Can’t you marry Olly? Go on, it’d be perfect!’”
