Model Katie Price has reportedly been flirting with X Factor hopeful Dan Ferrari-Lane, from boygroup District3.
According to the Sunday Mirror, the former Glamour model and I'm A Celebrity contestant exchanged 'saucy' texts with the 18-year-old after they met up last week.
Katie, a pal of X Factor star Rylan Clark, has been hanging out with the group in their hotel.
The newspaper quotes Katie as texting Dan: “I must say your (sic) looking good this morning xx.”
She apparently adds: “you don’t have to worry by the way I won’t say I’m texing you”.
A source revealed to the tabloid today “Katie seems to be enjoying building up friendships with several of this year’s X Factor contestants.
“But she certainly seems to have clicked in particular with Dan. It’s clearly all a bit a fun between the pair of them.
“But Dan is absolutely thrilled to be in dialogue with her. He never dreamed he’d be someone Katie Price wanted to know... but Dan’s thrilled and a bit shocked that he’s now on her radar. He thinks Katie is great.”
A spokesperson for Katie commented that she had sent texts to many contestants to “wish them good luck”.
And a spokesman for the X Factor refused to comment.
