London: Singer Cheryl Cole is believed to be dating her hair extension technician after being spotted on a low-key date near her home in North London.

The "Promise This" hitmaker who divorced England and Chelsea soccer player Ashley Cole last September enjoyed a low-key date with the mystery man at the Thai 18 eatery near her rented home in Hadley Wood, North London, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"They have a very special bond. Cheryl loves being around him and there is a definite connection there," said a source.

Meanwhile, staff at the restaurant admitted the new couple looked "very happy" together, with the 27-year-old beauty spending the evening "roaring with laughter".
