Tulisa 'Dating Shameless Star Jody Latham'

The X Factor judge reportedly hooked up with actor after he was in her video...

Tulisa Contostavlos is reported to be enjoying a whirlwind romance with Shameless star Jody Latham.

The X Factor judge is claimed by The Sun to have spent the last four nights with the actor, who played Lip Gallagher in the long-running Channel 4 show.

A source said: "Tulisa has told a few guys on the show that she's dating Jody. Things have moved really fast between them. They've hit it off big time — they have a real connection.

"They both had a tough time growing up in rough parts of the country. Jody's the life and soul of a party and Tulisa loves a night out — they are a perfect match. They've been inseparable this week."

Jody, 30, and Tulisa, 24, attended Rylan Clark's birthday party together earlier this week, where they were photographed getting out a car together.

They are claimed to have met through mutual friends at the V Festival in the summer and swapped numbers.

Tulisa then hired Jody to star in her next video Sight Of You - which includes a bedroom scene with her.

Latham is currently awaiting trial on charges of cultivating 24 cannabis plants at a house in Bacup, Lancs.

Tulisa's former bandmates Fazer and Dappy are reported to have scotched her dream of an N-Dubz reunion.
