The former partner of Dannii Minogue is said to be romantically involved with Sara Beverley Jones, a two-time Miss England finalist, reports The Mirror.
Jones is also a former Miss Manchester, and was once a contestant on ITV1 dating show Take Me Out.
"Kris has known Sara a long time and they have quite a few mutual friends. But recently they've grown much closer," a source said.
"She's a really stunning girl and he's a good-looking guy, so perhaps it's not that surprising.
"It's early days but they're very much into each other."
A fellow customer at a bar where the two were having lunch this week stated: "Kris and Sara were clearly close – they spent ages giggling flirtatiously.
"They were very tactile, and they look great together."
Dannii Minogue and Kris Smith separated after four years back in April.
The singer recently said that she felt "incredibly lucky" to have her son Ethan following her split from Smith.
