Rumour has it Nicole Scherzinger has a new boyfriend, and you'll definitely recognise him

Good for her!

Earlier this year, the beautiful Nicole Scherzinger broke up with her longterm boyfriend.

Having dated for over four years, the singer and tennis player Grigor Dimitrov called it quits.

And now it seems as though Nicole has moved on, and she's dead right.

Who has she moved on with, I hear you ask?

The gorgeous Thom Evans, a rugby player who is currently a contestant in celebrity X Factor.

The Sun on Sunday has reported that the duo had "flirted and texted for weeks" before Thom asked Nicole on an actual date. Cute.

A source told the publication:

"Thom is completely Nicole’s type. And for his part, Thom was smitten early on — he’s always said Nicole is one of the most beautiful women in the world."

In fairness, he's not wrong.

"He fancied her long before meeting her on the show. He was initially a bit nervous about starting something up, and ruining his chances on the series, but they had great chemistry from the off."

And after weeks of texting, Thom finally plucked up the courage to ask her out, and took her for dinner."

Interestingly, the news of these two dating comes shortly after Thom admitted to having very little time for the ladies since the start of Celebrity X Factor.

He told The Sun:

"I’d never date anyone from Instagram or an app — I would prefer to meet someone in real life, to be honest. I would prefer to meet someone in the moment. I’m single and there are lots of lovely girls on X Factor but I’ve been focused on the band."

"It’s been pretty stressful learning the songs so I’ve no time to indulge in women."

Time will tell I suppose.
