X Factor's Sam Callahan has denied rumours he's been dating Tamera Foster.

The pair have been linked in the tabloid this week, with claims that the two teens snogged backstage last month.

But Sam declared in a cheesy fashion: "I'm a single pringle and ready to mingle."

The 19-year-old confessed he would love to get a girlfriend, but the confines of living in The X Factor house have resulted in somewhat of a 'sex ban'.

"I'm just locked in a house that's like the most luxury, amazing prison anyone's ever been to!" Sam laughed.

He continued: "I'm talking to girls, but nothing serious. As I'm stuck in the house sharing a room with two other lads, I suppose it's kind of turning into a sex ban!"

In an interview that took place before Tamera split from her boyfriend, Sam said of the rumours going on between him and the Girls category singer: "I think she's lovely, but she's taken too.

"She's a beautiful girl but here's nothing going on."

Meanwhile, speaking to Now magazine this week, Sam was full of praise for his mentor Louis Walsh.

He gushed: "He's really cool and funny.

"The best thing is that he's so hands on - as soon as I need anything I can just ring him. He never, ever fails to pick up. I call him all the time."

The X Factor 2013 continues on ITV this Saturday and Sunday night with Big Band week, featuring performances from Robbie Williams and Celine Dion.
