The 'One Thing' singer is reported to have moved on from his ex-girlfriend Danielle Peazer with The X Factor star.
One Direction's Liam Payne is dating Leona Lewis, according to reports.
The 'Live While We're Young' star, who split with his long-term girlfriend Danielle Peazer last week, is believed to have been on two dates with the 'Bleeding Love' star in London.
Neither Liam nor Leona, who is eight years older than her fellow former The X Factor star, have commented on the reports in today's Sunday Mirror and The Sun.
"He is really excited about how things are going with Leona," a source told the Daily Mirror.
"As soon as the chance came to ask her out he grabbed it – and they really enjoyed their dates together. Although they were in London they managed to stay out of the limelight and are really into each other."
Leona Lewis is currently preparing to release her new album 'Glassheart':
Both Liam, who shaved his head earlier this week, and Leona have spoken positively about each other in the past, with the One Direction singer describing her as "beautiful".
Meanwhile, One Direction released their new single 'Live While We're Young' today (30th September).
The band's new song is the first to be taken from their forthcoming album 'Take Me Home', which is released in November.
