Ferne McCann is dating footballer Dele Alli.

The 25-year-old star has sparked rumours she's romancing the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, 19, after they were spotted locking lips at London's Libertine Club recently.

An onlooker explained: "They did not stop kissing and did not care who saw them. There were fireworks and absolutely no doubt they were really into each other.

"He's a red-blooded bloke who fancied Ferne. They hit it off straight away and he was very keen."

Ferne has kept the identity of her new "sportsman" boyfriend under wraps but couldn't help but gush about the mystery man who has stolen her heart during recent interviews.

But it seems the former 'The Only Way is Essex' star's over-sharing may have destroyed her romance for good.

The insider explained to The Sun newspaper: "Ferne's decision to tell everyone about their passionate affair has shocked him. He's wondering if he has a future with her."

The brunette beauty confirmed she was off the market last month but admitted their relationship was "early days."

She said previously: "It's very early days, but I do like him better than the rest I have dated. He's a sportsman but I'm not saying anything more. I do really like him. I like somebody who is charismatic, kind, generous and loyal. And they've got to be able to make me laugh."
