A source said: "Olivier is really hoping that he and Kylie can spend some serious quality time together after all that has gone on between them. Olivier has been missing her like crazy recently."

The couple officially split after four years in February 2007.

Kylie, 39, has always spoken fondly of how supportive the 41-year-old French actor was during her gruelling chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer, which she was diagnosed with in May 2005.
