X Factor 2012: Kye Sones chats up Emily Atack!

Kye Sones (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Kye Sones has reportedly hooked up with Inbetweeners beauty Emily Atack!

The actress was on the Xtra Factor at the weekend as part of the celebrity panel, and newly single Kye was quick to make a move.

According to The Sun, the pair are hoping to go out on a date next week after Kye struck up a conversation with the blonde babe.

A show source told the newspaper: “When Kye saw Emily his eyes nearly popped out of his head. He has always fancied her but never imagined he’d get to be in the same room as her.

“And it turned out she has a soft spot for him so they got on like a house on fire.”

The newspaper reports that they went backstage after the show to exchange numbers (and more...?) in Caroline Flack's dressing room.

Kye previously confessed he was overwhelmed by the amount of female attention he has been getting.

“It is quite overwhelming to suddenly get this attention from girls and to be called a heart-throb," he said. “I’m not used to that but it has boosted my confidence massively.

“Outside the hotel where we are staying during the show, there are always loads of screaming girls. I have had quite a few marriage proposals on Twitter. It is really funny — but I am not complaining. I just say yes to all of them. I have said yes to about 20 now. I am going to have a very busy year!”
