Amy Childs is reportedly dating professional footballer Adam Smith.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star said to be enjoying a blossoming romance with the sportsman, who plays for A.F.C. Bournemouth in the Football League Championship.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Amy didn't want to rush into anything after all the publicity surrounding Darren.
"But she's really taken to Adam. They're roughly the same age and have the same interests.
"It's early days but Amy is hopeful it will turn into something really serious."
The 21-year-old soccer star is also from Essex, and it is said the pair share many mutual friends.
They have already been on several dinner dates after meeting in a local bar, which prompted them to swap phone numbers start sending each other flirty text messages.
Amy spoke last year about wanting to settle down, but admitted it might be difficult with her busy career.
She previously said: "I can't wait to get married. Not yet though, in a couple of years. I've always wanted a big wedding and want all my family there.
"But I just wouldn't have the time at the moment. I've got so much coming up work-wise that I couldn't cope with it."
