Our lad Liam and his old squeeze Danielle Peazer called it quits and dunzo a long, long time ago.

But now the news hits the headlines that Danielle has been seen “dating” one of the stars of the current “X Factor UK” TV show.

Who’s the dude? And are Liam and Danielle REALLY dunzo??

The fab fellow who’s fallen under Danielle’s spell is Stereo Kicks member Casey Johnson, whose boy-band is one of the audience faves on the current “X Factor.”


And according to reports, Danielle and Casey first met backstage of the “X Factor,” during rehearsals at the show’s studios in Wembley.

Here’s what an “X Factor” insider told The Sun:

“It’s the first proper backstage romance this year,” the source said.

Fans might recall that Danielle reportedly once was a dating partner of Union J star Josh Cuthbert. Does she have an “X Factor” obsession? A boy-band thing to have a fling with up-and-coming male stars of the show?

Meanwhile, there’s more One Direction news coming out of the “X Factor” studios this week.

Seems that our boy Louis Tomlinson has been seen lurking around the set again —and now fans are beginning to truly wonder:

Is Louis being groomed to become a judge on the show — either now, or sometime in the near future?

Speculation on that subject is HOT — but not as HOT as the band’s latest music video, “Steal My Girl,” which Louis and the other members of One Direction have been hyping and touting all week, after it was released to the world.

Immediately after the release, Louis tweeted to his followers:

“Steal My Girl is one of the best videos we’ve ever made! 🙂 We hope you love it as much as we do!”
