Harry Styles is reportedly dating London-based chef and food blogger Tess Ward. The two apparently met through mutual friends, and have been on a couple of dates as well.

A source told The Sun: "As soon as Harry met Tess there was an instant spark between them. They really bonded over their mutual love of quirky fashion and food – and things turned romantic quickly.

"They've been on a number of dates while Harry has been in London and he's already introduced Tess to some of his close friends including his personal stylist Lou Teasdale," the insider added.

"This really seems different to Harry's past relationships as Harry genuinely is besotted with Tess and doesn't want to risk messing this one up," the source continued.

Styles was single for a long time since splitting up with Taylor Swift. The One Direction member sparked rumours that he is dating the Bad Blood hitmaker, after pictures emerged of the two at Central Park in 2012.

During an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the 23-year-old singer talked about the images. He said: "When I see photos from that day, I think: Relationships are hard, at any age. And adding in that you don't really understand exactly how it works when you're 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn't make it easier. I mean, you're a little bit awkward to begin with. You're on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure. But at the heart of it – I just wanted it to be a normal date."
