X Factor 2012: Is Tulisa Contostavlos dating Skins star Jack O’Connell?

Tulisa Contostavlos told us that she has a secret boyfriend just this week and some clever journalists think they might have discovered his identity.

The X Factor judge engaged in quite the Twitter rant, when tabloids accused her of sleeping with The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright and insisted that not only does he see her as a ‘chick with a d*ck,’ but that she actually has another man on the go currently.

Many speculated that it might be American record producer The Dream, however, new reports suggest she might be dating Skins actor Jack O’Connell.

A source told The Mirror that after splitting from her boyfriend and N-Dubz bandmate Fazer in January, Tulisa has went on a series of dates with Jack.

“It’s early days but Jack is very much Tulisa’s type – edgy and cool. He’s a really funny guy and makes her laugh a lot,” a source explained.

“They have quite a few mutual friends. It’s been a smooth transition from mates to something more.”

Jack, 21, is best known as James Cook in the E4 teen drama Skins. He has also starred in Doctors, The Bill, This Is England and the ITV serial of Wuthering Heights.

Last year O’Connell won the best actor award at the 2010 TV Choice awards for his role in Skins.

Do you think they’d make a nice couple, or is this all just some more rubbish speculation? Leave your comments below…
