Which X Factor contestants are in a rumoured relationship?
Rumours have emerged about a new romance blossoming in the X Factor house.
After recent revelations about Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie becoming a couple, there are now whispers circulating about a new loved-up pair on the show.
It has been reported that contestants Gifty Louise and 5 After Midnight singer Jordan Lee have become “inseparable” since moving into the X Factor mansion last week.
A show insider informed The Sun newspaper today: “Gifty and Jordan have been inseparable since entering the house but they are trying to keep things low key.”
However, apparently that the duo do not want to rush into anything too soon. The source explained: “It’s still very much early days for them both. And they don’t want to risk their friendship, or chances in the competition, by flaunting their feelings for each other.”
The two contestants definitely do seem a little cosy as of late. Gifty has been posting cute photos of herself with Jordan on Snapchat. She even referred to him as “baby” and “bae” on the boy band singer’s 21st birthday, before sharing a video of her kissing him on the cheek.
Emily and Ryan might have to keep an eye on their title as X Factor power couple…
The Scottish couple recently explained how they have actually been together for months and have known one other for years, despite what is being said in the press. Emily said: “The press have been saying we met at bootcamp, but we’ve actually known each other for four years.”
She added: “We only started going out seven months ago, though. We live close to each other and used to do local gigs, so we’d always see each other and say hey backstage.”
Emily also spoke about how proud she was when her boyfriend made it to the live shows. Last week she admitted to Hello Magazine: “I was crying for a full day, I’m not even kidding. I was like the proudest girlfriend. I was so happy.”
“And it’s nice to have someone who actually knows you in the house. He knows me inside out. I think I’d be a little bit lost if I didn’t have him.”
Emily, Ryan, Gifty and 5 After Midnight all made it through to next week’s live shows. We wonder if their relationships will survive competing against one another during Motown Week this weekend.
