Randy Colin Farrell's set his sights on the X Factor runner-up

Rebecca Ferguson‘s a rising star who could have her pick of men, while he’s already had more than his fair share of the female population.

But it seems Hollywood actor Colin Farrell’s determined to add another notch to his bedpost (if there’s room) in the shape of X Factor runner-up Rebecca.

Now has learnt that after seeing her on the show, Colin, 34, is keen to hook up with the 24-year-old singer.

Colin knows what he wants in a woman,’ reveals a source. ‘To say he’s impressed with Rebecca is an understatement. He thinks she’s incredibly sexy.’

Colin called time on his two-year relationship with actress Alicja Bachleda-Curus in October and now he’s striking while the iron’s hot.

Colin knows how to impress a woman,’ says a close pal. ‘He has all the right moves and says all the right things.

‘Pretty much every woman he turns his attention to eventually ends up as putty in his hands and he’s planning to woo Rebecca any way he can.

‘He’s single again now and out for some fun. It’s not just that he thinks she’s sensationally beautiful and sexy – he’s also impressed by her background and her determination.

‘He respects where she’s come from and what she’s made of herself.’

And he may be in luck as the singer, who’s a single mum to two children Lillie May, six, and Karl, four, is keen to find a man.

She recently revealed: ‘I’m starting to think I’d quite like a boyfriend.

‘I’ve been single for a while and it would be nice to have someone in my life.’ Oh dear.

This isn’t the first time Colin’s invested all his energy in bagging himself a date.

In 2005, actress Eileen Atkins – who was 70 at the time – revealed on chat show Loose Women that a ‘stunningly gorgeous big film star’ spent nearly three hours propositioning her for ‘sex with no strings’.

Colin later confessed it was him during an interview with Jonathan Ross.

Let’s hope after reading this Rebecca runs a mile…
