X Factor finalist Harry Styles is reportedly dating a model who is 7 years his senior.

The One Direction member was reportedly introduced to Syanne Patterson, 23, backstage on the hit ITV show last month and since then they’ve been inseparable.

“They’ve been seeing each other really hush-hush for a bit,” a source told The Sun.

“He’s completely smitten.”

The 16-year-old has also been linked to fellow contestant Cher Lloyd, 17.
