Simon Cowell appears to be hotting things up this Christmas as he’s been spotted dining with TV star Janina Gavankar.
Sources in America say the pair were out on Saturday night enjoying a dinner date at Cecconi’s restaurant in West Hollywood.
The actress known for 'True Blood' and 'The L Word' has openly flirted with the 53 year old on Twitter.
Cowell started it off with "Hello trouble. Simon x."
Janina replied with "Who me?? #Definitely me," as Cowell replied "yes you. x"

The X Factor judge seems to have an eye for beautiful brunettes. He’s been previously linked to Carmen Electra and has been in relationships with Terri Seymour and 80’s singer Sinitta.
Notorious for dating so many women and not settling down, the Syco boss was almost heading away from the bachelor lifestyle and became engaged to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy, which ended earlier this year.

Last year, he admitted paying off ex-girlfriends after splitting with them. In an interview with The Guardian, he said: "You can’t have somebody in your life who’s become accustomed to a certain thing, and just because you don’t want to be in the relationship any more say to them, now everything is cut off. That doesn’t make sense."
Gavankar has previously dated DeviantArt CEO Angelo Sotira for several years after breaking up in 2010.
