Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie banned from sharing a room in X Factor house


X Factor's Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie have been banned from sharing a room in the show's house.

The cute couple - who have confirmed they're dating - are both in the live shows together.

However show bosses don't want them becoming TOO close in The X Factor mansion.

Emily, Ryan and the rest of this year's X Factor final 12 moved into a £3.8 million luxury house in North London last month ahead of this weekend's live shows.

The two Scottish singers have in fact been dating for some time and met before auditioning for the series.

But it's still VERY early in the relationship to be living with one another.

"It's definitely fast-forwarded our relationship," Ryan said of appearing on the show with Emily. “I’m happy we’ll go through the experience together and help each other through any tough moments… We’re not allowed to share a room, though!”

Emily added: “It’s nice to have someone who actually knows you in the house. He knows me inside out. I’d be a little bit lost if I didn’t have him.”

Unfortunately for Emily that could well happen.

Once acts are eliminated they leave the X Factor house, meaning the pair could be torn apart in the near future.

Worse still, they may even end up having to sing off against one another.

"It’s surreal. We know there could be tough times ahead but I think we can work through them," Ryan said.

He added: "We’ve talked about how we’ll deal with it if one of us leaves, but we’re super- supportive of each other.”

The X Factor 2016 airs this Saturday and Sunday night at 8PM on ITV.
