Despite the shows bosses best efforts to prevent any romances between the contestants, two contestants have been kissing backstage.
There has already been a budding romance between Stevi Ritchie and Chloe Jasmine but it seems another relationship has been going on behind the scenes.
And this time its between two members from Louis’s (former) two groups Only The Young and Stereo Kicks.
The Sun newspaper reports that OTY singer Betsy-Blue English and Stereo Kicks’ Jake Sims were found smooching on set during a sound check.
The pair were both warned by producers, with a source saying: “They tried to keep it quiet but seem to have done a bad job.”
However the public have ended the short lived romance between the two contestants as Only The Young received the least votes in last night’s public vote, resulting in them being the first act to be voted out this weekend.
Meanwhile another Stereo kicks member has found himself in trouble after sending flirty messages to the wife of football start Neil “Razor” Ruddock.
Casey Johnson sent the blonde model supposed “filthy” messages via WhatsApp.
“He obviously saw a big-boobed blonde and chanced his arm,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “He’s only a kid. He was texting telling Leah what he wanted to do to her. He kept saying he thought she would be a right dirty b***h.
“It was all on Whatsapp messaging. They’ve not spoken in real life or on the phone.”
The insider added: “She said the texts Casey sent were filthy — he was being a right little sod.”
A spokesperson for The X Factor said: “We don’t comment on the personal lives of contestants.”
The X Factor continues tonight with the results show on ITV at 8pm featuring performances from Labrinth and Take That.
