Apparently, the former X Factor host has been dating fellow presenter Melanie Sykes for the best part of 12 months.

Mum-of-two Melanie runs her own fitness and lifestyle website, and a showbiz source said: "Mel loves a younger man and really fell for Olly when he got into shape late a year ago".

Mel is known to be a big fan of posting the impressive results of her workout sessions on social media, and she and the former X Factor victor are said to have got close over her fitness regime.

Melanie posted on Instagram last December that she was listening to Olly, and a close source says that "They were initially introduced through a mutual friend". They started texting for ages and some of the messages ended up getting quite saucy.

According to a source, the pair went on a string of dates after being allegedly introduced by a friend and bonding over their shared passion for fitness. He was a fan of her gym selfies and thought that she had an incredible body. HELLO! Online has contacted Olly's representative for comment.

Mel, 47, is said to have a thing for younger men and singer 33-year-old Olly's new gym bod caught her eye. How did they slip this one past us?!

Olly replied with: "Awww thanks babe".

Olly is thought to have been single since splitting from girlfriend Francesca Thomas in 2015, whilst Mel separated from second husband Jack Cockings - who she met on Twitter - in 2014. She also shares two sons, Roman and Valentino, with her first hubby, actor Daniel Caltagirone.

"The divorce was the easy bit". "The hard bit was being married to the wrong person".
