It’s been almost a year since former flames Katy Perry, 33 and Orlando Bloom, 40, confirmed their break-up, but it seems they may be rekindling their romance after recently reuniting in the Maldives.

In the midst of her Witness World Tour, Katy was seen taking some time out from her busy schedule to stop over in the Maldives where her former flame Orlando Bloom was on vacation.

Speculation that things may be back on again sparked when an image of the two relaxing over a drink appeared on social media.

Though you can't easily identify Orlando in the snap, he removed any doubt that he was the mystery man in the image after posting a picture of himself in also in the area.

The couple dated from January 2016 and confirmed their split in February 2017 but a source has revealed to E! News that they have remained close.

Another shared, "They have not lost contact. They are just keeping their close connection on the low lately. They speak all the time."

While Katy Perry has previously insisted that the two are 'just friends,' we would certainly be keeping an eye on this space.
