Two X Factor contestants have reportedly got themselves caught up in a romance at this year’s bootcamp.
Two rememberable faces at this year’s X Factor 2017 bootcamp have ‘hooked up’, according to reports.
Hayley Norton (from mum and daughter duo Descendance – Who Simon Cowell split up in last night’s episode) has reportedly ‘hooked up’ with Russell Jones.
Hayley and Russell ‘got frisky’ at the next stage of bootcamp during filming of the competition earlier this year.
“Russell and Hayley met each other at boot camp at Wembley Arena in London and there was an instant attraction between them. Emotions were running high and they took things back to the bedroom,” a source told The Sun. “Their night of passion was quickly the talk of boot camp and they did little to try and hide it.”
The source added: “It’s not clear if it’s going to develop into a full-blown romance but they are definitely having fun with each other.”
Despite X Factor bosses not banning contestants from dating each other, it has been said: “They would rather contestants were focusing all their energy into putting on the best performance possible on stage rather than saving it for the bedroom.”
The X Factor continues this weekend on ITV.
