Busted heart-throb Charlie Simpson has his sights set on romancing pop beauty Rachel Stevens, now he is single again after splitting with his long-term girlfriend.

The CRASHED THE WEDDING singer, 18, has ended his relationship with childhood sweetheart CAMILLA SMITH just five months after she moved into his $720,000 (GBP400,000) London pad - and is keen to step out with the former S CLUB star.

A source comments, "Rachel is gorgeous and Charlie realised that quite early on when they met.

"It is inevitable that they will be meeting again. In fact Charlie is going to make sure of it."

As for his relationship with Smith, the source adds, "Charlie and Camilla have been on the rocks for a while now.

"They moved in together and were very happy sharing a place at first.

"But now Charlie is missing the partying with his bandmates. The pair have known each other since they were very young and so Camilla was very used to coping with his relatively new-found fame.

"But recently it has occurred to both of them that they want different things."
