X Factor love birds Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie have been given the ultimate birth control.

The cute couple have been assigned a security guard to stop them 'getting intimate' in the X Factor house.

It's after the pair were supposedly caught flouting the show's 'sex ban'.

While the contestants had been banned from one another's rooms, Ryan and Emily apparently found a loophole by, err, 'making music with one another' on the STAIRS.

“Emily and Ryan have been getting frisky on the stairs late at night," a source told The Sun newspaper last weekend.

They claimed: “They’re banned from going in each other’s rooms so have found a way to bend the rules and head to the stairs for their hook-ups instead when they think all the other contestants are asleep."

Show bosses are also 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: “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.”

But now producers have gone 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 this weekend.

The X Factor 2016 is back tonight on ITV from 8PM.
