The TV host,who recently split from Twilight actor Jack Huston, has been confiding in Kelly Brook's ex, reports the Daily Star.
"They have been on a few lunch dates to talk about love and life," a friend of Deeley told the paper.
"Cat can really confide in him and they speak about everything.
"They feel comfortable together and he makes Cat laugh all the time. They act like best friends. She’s just happy to have someone to talk to," they added.
