X Factor 2012 finalist Ella Henderson has denied there's any romance going on between her and GMD3's Dan!
Rumours that the pair hit it off after both making the live shows are true, but Ella insisted they're just friends.
She revealed today: "Me and Dan actually went to the same college. We were in different years so we sort of know each other. So it’s just nice so we can relate to stuff – it’s a friendship."
Asked whether there was any other budding romances going backstage, Jade Ellis replied: "We’re all too busy concentrating on the show and having pillow fights and jumping on each other’s beds.
"We are all paired in different rooms. We all go from one room to the other. So we’re all sitting in one person’s room then we’ll run to someone else’s.'
Lucy added: "We’re room hopping. Not like that…"
And the 20-year-old went on to reveal to heat magazine this week: "I read a story the day after my first audition that said ‘Lucy hopes her X factor fame finds her a girlfriend.’ I was like ‘WHAT!?!?'
"So I’ve been getting emails from people sending pictures of themselves saying ‘Hi. I'm a chatty, 45-year-old woman from Norwich’, and stuff like that."
