Tulisa Contostavlos has bagged herself a new man in the form of Newcastle United star Danny Simpson, according to reports.

The 24-year-old 'X Factor' judge is said to have met the Premiership player through mutual friends and were said to have gone on a date in Manchester recently, the Mirror reported.

They spent Tuesday evening together, having romantic drinks and dinner.

"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," a source said.

"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.

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

Former Manchester United star Simpson, who earns around 25,000 pounds a week, is understood to have recently split from his ex-girlfriend, Stephanie.

The couple have a daughter, Skye. (ANI)
