There's said to be another romance blossoming in The X Factor 2016 house.

Following the first week of live shows, two of this year's contestants have become "inseparable".

It's been reported that Gifty Louise and 5 After Midnight singer Jordan Lee have 'got together'.

A show insider told The Sun newspaper today: “Gifty and Jordan have been inseparable since entering the house but they are trying to keep things low key."

The source claimed: “It’s still very much early days for them both.

"And they don’t want to risk their friendship, or chances in the competition, by flaunting their feelings for each other.”

Gifty and Jordan's rumoured relationship follows Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie revealing they were an item even before the live shows.

The couple recently told how they have in fact been together for months and have known one other for years.

"The press have been saying we met at bootcamp, but we've actually known each other for four years," Emily explained.

She continued: "We only started going out seven months ago, though. We live close to each other and used to do local gigs, so we'd always see each other and say hey backstage."

And "proud girlfriend" Emily revealed just how she reacted when boyfriend Ryan made the live shows.

"I was crying for a full day, I'm not even kidding," she told Hello magazine last week. "I was like the proudest girlfriend. I was so happy.

"And it's nice to have someone who actually knows you in the house. He knows me inside out. I think I'd be a little bit lost if I didn't have him."

Emily, Ryan, Gifty and 5 After Midnight all made it through Sunday night's first results show.

The X Factor continues next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
