Harry Styles and Caroline Flack are said to be all set to give their romance another go, six months after they split.
According to reports the pair have been growing close once again in recent months, with sparks flying as they exchanged flirty texts.
Now it seems One Direction cutie Harry and Xtra Factor presenter Caroline are getting ready for a face-to-face reunion to see if any real feelings still remain between them.
A ‘friend’ of the couple is quoted telling heat! magazine: “They’ve been texting and speaking to each other on and off throughout 1D’s tour of America over the past two months.
“The texts increased a bit just before he came back from tour and he seemed keen to meet up.”
However it seems that despite the fact Harry, 18, and Caroline, 32, are keen to meet, TV presenter Caroline is said to be particularly wary of being spotted with the singer at this time.
During their three month relationship between November 2011 and January 2012, Caroline faced criticism for dating someone so much younger than her, which was even further exaggerated by the fact that Harry was just 17 at the time.
She also faced vile abuse online from One Direction fans on Twitter, jealous of her romance with Harry.
So it wouldn't be surprising if Caroline was being cautious at this time - particularly if the former couple is still testing the water to see if a spark is still there.
The source told the magazine: “Now he’s back in the UK they’ve spoken and have provisionally arranged to meet up, but there’s are no firm plans as Caroline is extremely busy and is also very concerned about being pictured anywhere near him – she can’t stand the media frenzy.
“When they do meet up, it’s likely to be private at a mutual friend’s place. Harry’s attitude is ‘who cares what people think. It’s between us.’
“She doesn’t want to be made a fool of again. It took her a long time to get over the split, but there are still feelings there and she’s warmed to the idea of meeting him again.”
Since their split in January, Harry has been linked to a long list of women including X Factor’s Amelia Lily, model Lily Halpern, Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack and Made In Chelsea star Caggie Dunlop.
Caroline has also been linked to a number of men including Rizzle Kicks’ Jordan Stephens, but they are now believed to be just friends.
So will we see Harry and Caroline as a couple once again? Only time will tell!
