Olly Murs dating Diana Vickers?

Olly Murs is reportedly casually dating former 'X Factor' contestant Diana Vickers.

The 'Never Been Better' hitmaker - who split from girlfriend Francesca Thomas recently - has been growing close to the 24-year-old singer and actress, who is reported to be newly single after a break-up with One Night Only frontman George Craig.

A source told 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."

Olly, 31 and his girlfriend of three years, Francesca, 26, are believed to have called time on their relationship following a holiday last month, with Olly struggling to balance his personal life with his hectic working schedule.

A source said: "The split has just happened and it is very raw for Olly, he still feels numb.

"He always worried that his relationship would struggle because he'd always put his career first."

As well as managing his pop career, Olly is also currently serving as a presenter on 'The X Factor' in Britain, which has further restricted the time he's been able to spend with Francesca.

A source previously said: "They worked so hard to keep their relationship strong, all their friends are stunned they couldn't make it work."
