X Factor 2012: Kye Sones dumps girlfriend... and now wants to hit on Cheryl Cole!

Kye Sones (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 finalist Kye Sones has split from his girlfriend ahead of the live shows.

According to The Sun, hunky Kye is now single after parting ways from his American beauty editor girlfriend Halle Carlson.

And it sounds like Kye has now got a crush on former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole, after the pair met - and flited - during judges' houses last month.

A source told the newspaper today: “Halle supported him all the way to bootcamp.

"But Kye thinks X Factor will change his life forever and it’s given him the push he needed to end the relationship.

"If he had a second chance with Cheryl, he’d jump at the chance.”

The tabloid also reports that Kye and the other boys in the competition are loving their new found fame, having already been papped surrounded by girls after a night out at London’s Whisky Mist club earlier this week.

An onlooker told the paper: “One girl in a leopard-print outfit was trying it on with all the boys. They loved it.”

An X Factor spokesman added: “Kye and Halle split. They remain good friends.”
