Copyright [Lexi Jones/Phil Lewis/WENN]Speaking to Mirror Celeb at the Music Industry Awards, the 31-year-old denied that anything was going on romantically between him and Diana, 24, revealing that they’re just friends. It’s a load of rubbish.“Me and Diana are friends, we’ve known each other a long time. Blabbing to The Sun about the two newly-singles, the source claimed: “They’ve always had a soft spot for each other.
Now since they are both single they have been in touch.
“There’s an obvious attraction between the pair of them and they’re both young and good-looking.
Olly, 31, and model Francesca broke up last month after three years of dating, with the singer suggesting she struggled to cope with his intense female fans. He said: “A lot of my fans are girls, so it can cause problems, obviously.
It was reported last week that Olly had moved on with Diana, 24, but he’s hit back. Sometimes I’ll ask Francesca to stay in the people carrier when a crowd comes around.
Speaking to the Mirror, the X Factor host said: “It’s so ridiculous. “Me and Diana are friends, we’ve known each other for a long time. “From her prospective she’s thinking, ‘Why am I a secret? ’ And I say, ‘You can come with me if you want’, but if someone comes up and asks for a picture and says, ‘Olly I really fancy you, you should dump your girlfriend.
We find it funny.” In his new book On The Road, Olly revealed how his passionate Murs Army caused problems for him and 26-year-old Francesca.First there was all the rumours that Olly Murs had hooked up with Caroline Flack after breaking up with girlfriend of three years Francesca Thomas, but now there’s a new X Factor girl he’s apparently set his sights on – Diana Vickers. Although the two appeared on separate series of X Factor – him in 2009 and her in 2008 – a source has told The Sun that the pair have grown close in recent weeks.READ THE LASTEST CELEBRITY NEWS RELATED: Olly Murs and Caroline Flack are getting married… Now, since they are both single they have been in touch.There’s an obvious attraction between the pair of them and they’re both young and good-looking.’ Diana has also reportedly just come out of a relationship with her beau of four years – One Night Only’s George Craig. Check out the video below for X Factor secrets and tips…And it’s not the first time Olly and Diana have been romantically linked. Back in 2010 Olly confessed that his management had pretty much banned him from seeing her because they wanted him to remain single for his image. And let’s be honest, he’ll probably get really lonely just wandering about in that space on his own. He’s 5ft 9 and she’s 5ft 7 which is the perfect height difference for walking along holding hands just FYI.
