A source told MailOnline: ‘Jack has really fallen for Ellie. They already share a close bond and are totally smitten with each other.
‘It’s still early days but pals believe they have a great chance of a future together.’
Jack has been single since splitting from ex-girlfriend Alee Jeffreys last year whom he met on social media.
The former Celebrity Big Brother star said the relationship was his ‘most serious’ since Jade’s death in 2009.

He previously admitted he found relationships hard because he was ‘always comparing’ girlfriends with Jade.
Jack, who has also previously dated Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes, 34, is hosting the Summer Charity Ball in July, alongside best pal Mark Wright, 35, to raise money for the cancer rehabilitation trust he set up in Jade’s memory.
James ‘Arg’ Argent will be performing at the bash, which takes place in Bishop’s Stortford – the same venue Jack and Jade got married a week before she died of cervical cancer.
It was revealed this week Jack has reconnected with Jade’s son Bobby Brazier ahead of the fundraiser.

The 18-year-old model and his brother Freddy, 17, whose dad is Jade’s former partner Jeff Brazier, shared a close relationship with Jack before her death.
In March, widower Jack paid tribute to his late wife posting several photographs of them together on Instagram.
Captioning a picture of their wedding day, he wrote: ’13 years since I last got to see this angel. Miss you every day #raiseawareness #smeartest.’
Jade passed away from cervical cancer aged 27 in 2009 a month after their glamorous wedding.
It was just seven months after she was diagnosed with the deadly cancer.

Jack admitted he suffered with depression following her death and turned to alcohol, telling The Sun: ‘I didn’t know how to deal with it when I was young. I didn’t know what else to do.
‘All I could think about was how depressed I was and I would just sit there and just constantly think about Jade. So I’d just have a drink every day, it would go from there.
‘Then I’d get pictured having a drink and people would think I don’t care about anything.’
