The on again, off again couple were seen catching some waves during the Labor Day holiday in Santa Barbara, California.

The pair officially split back in March but they have been seen together from time to time since, fuelling speculation they are back together.

It comes after Katy admitted she likes having Orlando in her life.

She said last month: "Well you know I think people are in and out of your life. It's nice to keep people you love around you. When you get older, lines get blurred. And you know what, I'm really busy. I'm about to go on tour for another year."

Whilst a source added of their romance: "They have never cut communication since they broke up. They just took a break because it was the best thing for them at that time, [but they] are seeing each other again. Katy and Orlando want this to work this time, so they are working on mending their relationship.

"They've had some really good talks and have a better understanding on their needs. Time will tell at this point, but [things are] looking very positive. When they went out in public, they were aware that people would start speculating that they were back on, and they are OK with that. They love each other and never stopped."

It was previously claimed that the pair had split up before because Orlando wasn't ready to settle down.

The insider shared at the time: "Katy and Orlando had a great time together. It was a great healing process for Orlando following his divorce from Miranda. But Katy and Orlando discovered they were on different pages.

"Katy wants children and to get married, while Orlando has been there and done that. At 32, Katy doesn't want to waste any more time. It became a strain."
