The 'Young' singer was spotted with the Premier League star at a hotel in Manchester last night.

Tulisa Contostavlos is reportedly dating Newcastle United star Danny Simpson.

The 'Live It Up' singer was spotted on a romantic date with the footballer at a hotel in Manchester last night (14th November).

According to the Daily Mirror, the couple have been seeing each other for some time and met via a mutual acquaintance . 

The N-Dubz star recently split from Skins actor Jack O'Connell and was also rumoured to be dating The Wanted star Max George – something both parties have since denied.

"Danny is a good-looking guy and, physically, completely T's type," a source told the publication. "After being set up by a mutual ­associate, they swapped numbers and recently started texting."

The insider continued: "They have similar senses of humour and arranged their first date last week. Tulisa went up to Manchester on Tuesday to meet him for drinks in a hotel. 

"It went well and they had a laugh."

The pair apparently are looking to "take it all slowly" and spent 45 minutes together at the hotel before moving onto the Gaucho restaurant in the city.

Earlier this year, Tulisa opened up on her relationships and said she can't wait to start a family.

She was recently reunited with former boyfriend and bandmate Fazer at the recent Music Industry Awards dinner.
