X Factor couple Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie's constant kissing isn't impressing their fellow finalists.

The loved up couple however insist they're not locking lips ALL the time.

Chatting about life in The X Factor house with Ryan, Emily revealed: "It's so lovely that we're going through this together. If I'm struggling with anything, I can go to him.

"We've been rehearsing together and singing each other's songs to see if there's anything [we need] to work on. We've always done that."

And she added: "It's not weird living together because we see each other all the time back home anyway."

But while they're enjoying one another's company, some of their fellow contestants aren't so keen.

Gifty Louise complained to Reveal magazine this week: "Emily and Ryan are well suited but I just don't like seeing it in my face.

"Every time I turn around - kissing, kissing, kissing. Oh, get out of my face!"

But Emily defended herself: "What can I say? We don't kiss all the time, we hug - but we are together."

While Emily and Ryan may be allowed to kiss, show bosses are keen to make sure they don't go much further.

They're said to have given the couple a talk about the birds and the bees following an earlier X Factor baby surprise this month.

An X Factor insider spilled recently: “They are the first official couple to go into the house together and – in a bid to avoid another pregnancy shocker – producers have lectured the young couple about safe sex.

“With no parents around it’s like they have properly moved in together so it’s no surprise things between them have got rather steamy.”

And this week producers went one step further with a security guard physically preventing the pair from getting too close.

"The security guard is literally sitting with us. We hear his stories from what he’s been doing and his jobs," Emily told The Sun yesterday.

The X Factor airs Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
