Though their romance came to an end more than a year ago, Caroline Flack and Harry Styles are still mates and it seems they even take style advice from each other! Xtra Factor host Caroline stepped out in a top strikingly similar to one owned by Harry on a date with her new man Jack Street last night - wonder if he noticed?

Caroline Flack's relationship with Harry Styles is a thing of the past - though the former couple still have their similarities.

One Direction star Harry has dated a string of girls since his split from Caroline in early 2012, while the Xtra Factor host has found love with a new man.

Caroline recently confirmed she's dating music manager Jack Street when she posted a string of cosy photos of them together to Instagram.

And last night they headed out on a date to posh London restaurant Hakkasan.

But we can't help but wonder if Caroline - or indeed Jack - noted her fashion faux pas.

Caroline was clearly feeling the love as she wore a heart print top for the occasion, which she teamed with a short skirt and long black coat.

The TV host's top was in fact extremely similar to the Burberry heart print shirt her ex Harry wore for One Direction's This Is Us premiere last month.

The his 'n' hers tops are both navy blue but Caroline's is thought to be from Topshop and therefore significantly cheaper that Harry's designer wear.

Harry seemed to kick off the heart print trend, which has since been worn by a string of celebs.

But we're sure the 1D heartthrob was far from Caroline's mind as she stepped out with birthday boy Jack last night.

Jack yesterday tweeted a photo of a cake Caroline had made him, along with a present in the background.

He captioned the image: "Cannot wait to eat this... Probably the best cake ever."

A friend of Caroline's replied to the post: "Happy birfdee jack....your GF rocks!"

And he responded: "Thanks Gemma! She really does."

Caroline also posted a photo to Instagram of Jack's opened presents - with one that looks like a Mulberry bag.

It must be serious!

Caroline and Jack are thought to have been dating since the beginning of the summer and over the last few months have been on holiday and attended Glastonbury and Wireless festivals together.

While there's an age gap between Caroline, 33, and 25-year-old Jack, their eight years has nothing on her controversial romance with Harry.

Caroline was 32 and Harry just 17 when they got together after meeting through The X Factor in 2011.

Because of their 15-year age gap, Caroline was widely criticised and labelled a cougar - she even received death threats from 1D fans.

But throughout the brief romance Caroline was sure to stick up for herself and admitted she saw nothing wrong with what they were doing.

She told Now magazine: "I feel like I shouldn't have to worry about what I do. But it’s a social thing that people aren't accepting of big age gaps.

"I keep thinking, ‘What have I done wrong?’ But I haven't done anything wrong.

"What's hard for me to get my head around is people saying it's disgusting. I don't think it is."
