The source said: ‘Diora’s an upcoming model in Europe so it’s no surprise she caught Lee’s eye when they met.

‘He has been chatting to her a lot her behind-the-scenes telling anyone who’ll listen he’d love to be partnered with her so they can spend hours rehearsing together.

‘She’d be his match made in heaven.’
