LAUREN Pope revealed she had a crush on Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers back in May this year.
And now it appears the reality star's confession has paid off after it was reported the pair have been dating for “several months”.
According to The Sun, the unlikely couple made their first public appearance at London's Winter Wonderland just this week.
"It was a very romantic date, they were holding hands through out,” an onlooker told the publication.
“They looked completely loved up and really enjoyed the day out.”
Lauren told New! magazine that she had a crush on the professional party-lover a while back, describing the 25 year old as her type.
“I was DJing at a club and he was there,” the former The Only Way Is Essex star revealed.

The Only Way Is Essex's Nicole Bass and Geordie Shore's Aaron Chalmers confirmed for the new series of Ex On The Beach
“We had a very funny, drunken night. We went to bed at 6am!”
And perhaps hinting of what was to come, the 34 year old said she would definitely consider a date with the lothario.
"If he asked then yeah, I’m sure I would!” the DJ said.
"I do love the accent.
“I think Aaron is the hottest on the show and my type is tattoos and a beard, so he fits the bill.”
But it seems the former glamour model could be in for a difficult time when her new beau’s series of Ex On The Beach airs on TV next year.
Aaron got down and dirty in the latest season of the reality show, getting intimate with escort Jenny Thompson straight away.
A source close to Jenny told The Sun: “Jenny T had her eyes on Aaron from the start, he’s completely her type and she made a beeline for him right away.
“It wasn’t long before she’d got her wicked way with him and they were in bed with each other, things got pretty heated pretty fast.”
Aaron and Lauren's relationship is also the second time the Geordie hunk has been romantically involved with one of Lewis Bloor's ex girlfriends.
The reality star was previously rumoured to be seeing Nicole Bass, who appeared on TOWIE back in 2015.
Lewis is currently in a relationship with Aaron's ex girlfriend, Marnie Simpson, after they met on Celebrity Big Brother.
