The former Only Way is Essex star is said to have asked the 'Heart Skips a Beat' star's friend Scott Mills to set them up when the pair appeared as guests on Britain's Got More Talent.
Childs is quoted as asking the Radio 1 DJ: "You know Olly, he's hot. Can you get us an introduction? I've got a huge crush. We could be the new Essex power couple."
"Scott said he'd see what he could do," the source added to The Sun.
The reality star revealed last summer that she had been romantically linked with Olly Murs.
She also stated that she is looking for love following her break-up from City broker Joe Hurlock last July.
Olly Murs will embark on his second UK arena tour from March next year.
