X Factor host Olly Murs is reportedly dating singer Diana Vickers.

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.
