The pair were seen having a private tour of Hampton Court Palace together this weekend.

Russell Brand has reportedly moved on from his divorce to Katy Perry and is dating The Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell.

The 'Spice Up Your Life' star and the comedian have apparently shared several dates and been getting close since they spent time together at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony, according to The Sun.

"Things are getting very serious between them — they're a proper couple now," a source told the publication. "They had met several times in the past, but really got to know each other during the Olympics."

They continued: "People thought Russell was joking at the time, when he said he had a crush on Geri all over again, but it was true. They just clicked — they have so much in common.

"He is spending so much more time in London just to be with her."

The couple were also spotted over the weekend having a private tour of Hampton Court Palace along with Geri's six year-old daughter.

An onlooker told the newspaper: "I thought it was the most random thing ever to see Russell Brand of all people in a place like that — until my wife pointed out he was with a Spice Girl.

"They seemed like they were having a really great time, holding hands and chatting — it was 100 per cent obvious they were a couple. Geri was holding his hand the same way I hold my wife's. It was so cute."

The comedian and ex-wife Katy finalised their divorce last month – six months after ending their 14 month relationship together.

Meanwhile, Katy has been linked with Florence & The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd and musician John Mayer since the split.
