Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has been having "fun" with Craig David.
The 32-year-old beauty recently split from her French husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and she has reportedly grown increasingly close to the British singer after they met during the final of 'The X Factor'.
A source close to the situation said: "The atmosphere was electric when they met on the X Factor set.
"Cheryl has needed fun and friendship in recent months and Craig has given her that."
The insider suggested there could be something romantic between the pair, revealing they are in regular contact.
The source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "They speak a lot and there is something special between them. Watch this space."
Last month, meanwhile, it was revealed that Craig had agreed to work with Cheryl on her next solo album.
A source previously said: "Cheryl and Craig are fans of each other's work. Cheryl listened to Craig's earlier work as a teenager and also likes his new material.
"He's keen to help write a track for her as the timing is perfect for both of them musically - and they both have plenty of ideas."
