Nicole Appleton and Danny Cipriani 'spotted on a date'

Nicole Appleton has reportedly been spotted on a cosy date with rugby player Danny Cipriani.

The 41-year-old singer and the sports star were seen at Booking Office bar in London's St Pancras station on Thursday (23.06.16), just days after he was linked to 'Game of Thrones' actress Sophie Turner.

An onlooker said: "Danny and Nicole were having a very close drink at the wine bar. They were sitting knee to knee and it was obvious they liked each other.

"The body language was pretty obvious. Nicole looked pretty smitten, she was laughing and smiling with him and even leaned in for a kiss at one point.

"They were in the more secluded part of the bar but made no attempt to hide. Clearly neither cared if they were spotted spending time together."

What's more, the duo are reported to have left the bar at the same time and then headed to the hotel where Danny was staying.

The source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Nicole had a drink, but Danny was only having soft drinks.

"They were chatting openly for about 40 minutes and then they both left at the same time. They were heading toward the Renaissance hotel in St Pancras station, where Danny must have been staying."

The claims come shortly after Danny was said to have been flirting with Sophie, who is best known for her starring role in 'Game of Thrones', at a party in London.

A source previously said: "Danny and Sophie were in the bar for about an hour and a half. He was hitting on her very hard, chatting her up relentlessly. And she seemed very flattered.

"They were holding hands and stayed by each other's sides throughout. It was very cosy, intimate.

"They were only interested in each other. They seemed happy together and to be having a good time."
