Katie Smith met Harry on The X Factor in 2010

A former flame of Harry Styles is set to appear on The Voice this weekend.

Katie Smith got close to the One Direction star when she met him at the boot camp stage of The X Factor in 2010 but things fizzled out when she was kicked off the programme.

Katie can claim to have had Harry‘s eye before he was famous. He was smitten with her for ages and they used to flirt all the time on the show,’ says a source.

‘The Xtra Factor even picked up on it and arranged a date for them.’

If Harry‘s crush is reignited when he sees Katie on his television screen he’s bound to be disappointed – the pretty blonde is no longer available.

Katie‘s now loved-up with a new man – ironically a curly-haired singer called Harry – and the pair will be seen performing Paolo Nutini‘s Candy together on the BBC talent contest.

‘It was a puppy love thing but was destined to end abruptly as she didn’t make it to the live shows,’ the insider tells The Sun.

‘Who knows, maybe he will watch the show on Saturday and feel an urge to give her a call?’
