Tulisa hinted at new romance at the weekend

Tulisa Contostavlos‘s secret new man is believed to be former Skins star Jack O’Connell.

The X Factor judge was snapped partying at London nightclub Aura last week with Derby boy Jack, 21 – who played James Cook in the teen drama series – and it seems things have progressed from there.

‘It’s early days but Jack is very much Tulisa‘s type – edgy and cool,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘He’s a really funny guy and makes her laugh a lot.’

The pair, who also went out in Derby this weekend, met through Tulisa‘s PA Gareth Varey and have a number of mutual friends.

Tulisa split with her N-Dubz band mate Fazer, 25, two months ago and was forced to deny on Sunday that she’d recently hooked up with ex TOWIE star Mark Wright, 25, after a night out in Miami.

‘I have sumthin 2 say 2day..1.people make me sick the things they do 4 cash,disgustin,’ Tweeted Tulisa, 23.

‘2.Why am I meant 2 b bangin every guy Im seen with?

‘3.I have DEFFINITELY NOT shagged mark wright and I can swear that on my uncle B’s GRAVE!.

‘4.If the press r so bloody interested … In my love life!& their guna keep makin out I’m shaggin every bloke I meet till they have sumin 2 write about! GUESS WHAT…

‘I am seeing some1!!cus Im a bloody human being!& it gets better!

‘..He is not mark wright!& 4 the record mark is not my type & nor me his..

‘In fact he thinks Im a chick with a dick. & like my men a bit ruff around the edges!write that!

‘Middle finger is
