X Factor's Sam Callahan is in hot water with girlfriend Tamera Foster this morning over 'sexting' claims.
The pair of singers hooked up on the show and have since confirmed their romance.
But just weeks after both were booted out of the series, Sam's back in the papers over allegations that he 'cheated' on Tamera by exchanging nude pictures and saucy texts to a model.
“I feel used by Sam. He just rings me when he wants phone sex which is every other day after 1am," the unnamed model is quoted as saying by The Sun on Sunday. “He asks me to do sexual things which he can look at while he talks dirty down the phone to me.”
Sam admitted to the tabloid: “It was such a stupid thing to do. I want to apologise to everyone who has been supporting me, especially my friends and family. I never meant to hurt or upset anyone.”
He added: “What was at the time a bit of fun has turned on me to bite me back and it’s a lesson learned.
“It’s made me grow up very quickly and also shown me that I am too trusting of people.”
Sam and Tamera announced their relationship earlier this month despite having dismissed all the rumours when both were performing on the show.
“I didn’t expect to meet anyone in the house because I had a boyfriend," Tamera said. “But it’s early days. I don’t really know what’s happening at the moment as we haven’t had ‘the chat’.”
She added: “I just want to see where it goes, but I like him and we’re enjoying it at the moment. We aren’t properly official.”
Meanwhile, Sam explained: “We’re together, but I need the seal of approval from her uncle before we can go official. I’m meeting him in a couple of weeks.”
The X Factor concludes tonight on ITV with the live final from 7:30PM.
