Tulisa Contostavlos dating footballer Danny Simpson

Tulisa Contostavlos has been spotted on a date with soccer star Danny Simpson in Manchester, after the pair met through a “mutual associate”.

The Young singer – who has previously had relationships with her N-Dubz bandmate Fazer, DJ Adam Bailey and Skins actor Jack O’Connell – was spotted enjoying dinner and drinks with the Newcastle United player on Tuesday (13.11.12) after they were introduced to each other through a mutual friend.

A source said: “Danny is a good looking guy and completely Tulisa’s type. After being set up by a mutual associate, they swapped numbers and recently started texting. They have a similar sense 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.”

After meeting up they began to follow each other on twitter, but they are both reportedly planning on taking their new relationship slowly.

The source added to the Daily Mirror: “Neither Danny nor Tulisa are in any hurry to rush things. They both want to take it slowly. It is early days.”
