The tv presenter split with girlfriend of two years Francesca Thomas in September and the pair are said to be "having a laugh" together. Diana also recently parted ways with George Craig, whom she had been dating for four years.

"They’ve always had a soft spot for each other. Now since they are both single they have been in touch," a source told The Sun.

"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."

Murs was a runner up in the X Factor in 2009 and now hosts the show alongside Caroline Flack, while Vickers appeared on the programme in 2008.
