It looks like there's an X Factor romance brewing between Kingsland Road singer Jay Scott and Tamera Foster.

The news comes just days after it's reported that Tamera's relationship with her current boyfriend is "on the rocks", although not completely over just yet.

A source said yesterday: "The relationship is in trouble.

“It’s been hard for them to see each other as she is on the show and is desperate to win.”

Speaking to The Sun newspaper today, Jay admitted that he did have quite the crush on 16-year-old Tamera.

"She’s gorgeous, talented and such a nice, genuine person. Who wouldn’t?" he said. “When she had a boyfriend, I never would have pursued anything. But now she’s single I might just try my luck.

“I know I’m not the only boy in the house to fancy her.

“We are genuinely really close. She’s a great person.”

And according to the paper, the other contestants have noticed a special bond between the pair of youngsters, who are living together in The X Factor house.

An insider told the tabloid this morning: “With all the contestants living together in such close quarters, there is always the potential for romance.

“Jay and Tamera have definitely been getting friendly. All the other contestants expect them to be the first romance on this year’s show.”

The X Factor live shows continue this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV with Disco week, and performances from Nile Rogers and Chic, Taylor Swift and Little Mix.
