It comes after Lottie was said to be ‘growing close’ to Lewis Burton, who previously dated the late former Love Island host Caroline Flack.
The pair are said to have bonded over the grief of losing their respective loved ones – with Lottie losing her mother and sister in recent years and Lewis losing Caroline in February.
Lottie’s sister Félicité, 18, died after an accidental drug overdose, three years after the death of her mother Johannah, who died of cancer.
It’s understood Lottie became better acquainted with Lewis at a house party in May hosted by Caroline’s close friend Lou Teasdale, 36, which was held to mark three months since her tragic passing.
A source exclusively told MailOnline: ‘Lewis and Lottie have grown close after spending time together at a party at Lou’s house. They have been meeting up in secret for weeks but their newfound friendship hasn’t gone unnoticed by mutual pals.
‘Not all of Caroline’s friends are happy with how the situation appears to be developing but can understand that both Lottie and Lewis have been there for each other as a shoulder to cry on.
‘Lewis spent last week in Marbella while Lottie was in St Tropez the weekend previous, they couldn’t wait to be reunited with each other on Friday.’

A representative for Lottie Tomlinson declined to comment at the time.
Lottie – who was known to be friends with Caroline through their links with The X Factor – recently posted a slew of sun-kissed swimwear snaps from her holiday to Mykonos, which Lewis liked on Instagram.
This fuelled rumours they had ‘grown close’, after photos exclusively obtained by MailOnline showed Lewis arriving at his flat with Lottie at the end of July.

While last Friday the pair were seen taking a sunny stroll and sipping on juices, just two days after the inquest into Caroline’s death.
Caroline died by suicide, aged 40, at her London home, days before she was due to face trial for assaulting Lewis, who she had been in a relationship with for just over six months.
The TV presenter was arrested in December for assault and charged with attacking the model at her home in Islington.
Lewis dropped his assault complaint against Caroline but prosecutors pursued it and the couple was told not to have any contact.
