Tulisa Contostavlos
The singer and Newcastle United star Danny Simpson are reportedly enjoying a secret romance.

She already has the X Factor, but it seems that Tulisa Contostavlos now has the WAG Factor after reportedly hooking up with Newcastle United footballer Danny Simpson.

The 24-year-old singer, who was crowned FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World earlier this year, is said to be enjoying a secret romance with the soccer star after being introduced by mutual friends

According to the Sun, the smitten pair recently went on a date in Manchester and were also caught checking into a hotel on a separate occasion.

The Young hitmaker also delighted fans by boldly striding out of a Tesco store hand-in-hand with the Toon right back earlier this week.

A close friend of Simpson told the Sun: "He pursued Tulisa - he really fancies her and went out of his way to get her number. They hit it off and booked into a Manchester hotel."

Another source told The Mirror that the pair started dating after exchanging flirty text messages for weeks.

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

"Neither Danny or T are in any hurry to rush things, and both want to take it all slowly. It is still early days.

"They seem to be both enjoying the romance."

Following her split from her NDubz bandmate and boyfriend of two years Fazer in January, the brunette beauty briefly dated Skins actor Jack O'Connell.

She has recently been linked to Shameless star Jody Latham after he played her love interest in the video for her new single, Sight Of You.

Simpson famously bedded Natasha Giggs - Ryan Giggs' sister-in-law - when he played for Manchester United.
