Since his arrival on The X Factor, Stevi has made no secret of his romance hopes, from flirting with his fellow over contestants, reportedly dating Chloe Jasmine-Whichello and even being rumoured to have disappeared backstage with a backing dancer before he was due in stage.


But, now hoping to finally find 'The One', Stevi has revealed his new pal Simon has stepped in.

Speaking to The Sun, Stevi said: "Simon is going to set me up with five ladies apparently... He's pimping me out but I don't mind."

Spilling the beans that one lucky lady is said to be Simon's PA, Stevi admitted he had no idea who the other potentials would be - but, he's not worried!

"I doubt they would be below [Simon's] standards," he said.

After, dinner dating at the Harvester together it sounds like Simon and Stevi have now struck up a solid friendship... especially if Simon is now playing wing man!

Earlier this week, Stevi proved he's a true gentleman when it comes to dating after he revealed how he would treat the lady he is trying to impress.

And, after hearing what he had to say... we reckon the girls will be queuing up!

So, what is Stevi's secret to a good first date?

He said: "If I'm honest, you have to be somewhere where you can chat and get to know her. I think you've got to go for a nice drink in a swanky bar with cocktails and nice things like that...

"And then, you get a nice cab home, give her a kiss goodnight, walk back and hopefully she'll give you that text in the morning. That is the key!"

Well, he's definitely won us over!
