Rumour has it that Tottenham player Jermain Defoe and singer Alexandra Burke are officially dating. The two celebs were spotted on a date at north London’s Landmark hotel and according to staff were holding hands. A source told the Sun:

Alexandra had been playing hard to get and a lot of flirting was going on. She finally gave in the other week and they took things further… They are both really happy and looking forward to meeting up more often when she comes off her UK tour.

Burke and Defoe have been mates for years, but finally decided to cross the friend zone boundary. We must say they do look good together, and this is the first non-blonde that Jermain Defoe has publicly been linked to. Maybe Burke can put a stop to his cheating ways!
