The Arctic Monkeys frontman only split from Taylor Bagley - whom he was dating for three years - back in July, but he's wasted no time getting back on the market as he's said to be enjoying a string of dates with French singer Louise Verneuil.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "It is still very early days but Alex has been spending time with Louise during the band's current tour. Things only recently ended with Taylor so he isn't rushing into anything serious."

And it seems Louise has had her eye on the 32-year-old rocker for a while as she admitted in 2016 that she wanted to marry him after attending one of his gigs.

An insider explained: "They enjoy each other's company and it's no secret that Louise has always held a flame for Alex. Her friends know he is exactly her type so she is obviously very happy they have grown close."

Although it's still early days at the moment, things between the pair are hotting up quite quickly as Alex introduced Louise to his father earlier this week when he took her along for a family meal in his native Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

The news that Alex is now dating Louise will no doubt come as a blow to Taylor as they were together for such a long time and even had tattoos of one another.

A source said earlier this week "They were private about their relationship and never really spoke about each other. But behind closed doors they were really close for a long time and very much in love. In July they made the decision to separate, though. That's why she hasn't been with him while the band have been touring the UK. She has instead stayed home in the US."
