X Factor's Emily Middlemas 'jealous' as Ryan Lawrie gets close to backing dancers


X Factor's Emily Middlemas has admitted to getting a little jealous of Ryan Lawrie.

It's after her boyfriend spent time in rehearsals this week cosying up to a bunch of backing dancers.

Tonight's theme and Motown and couple - and rivals - Ryan and Emily will each be belting out a brand new song to stay in the competition for another week.

Chatting to The Sun newspaper, Ryan revealed he'll be seen getting close to a number of female dancers during his performance this evening.

However Emily was not best pleased.

Ryan explained: “In rehearsals I was like, ‘Oh I’ve got a few dancers’ and she [Emily] was like getting all annoyed at me.

“It’s weird. It’s a weird situation to be in.

"Choreographer Brian [Friedman] was like, ‘We all know you’ve got a girlfriend but for this you don’t.’ I was like, ‘OK’.”

Emily confessed to the tabloid she found it strange to watch on, describing her feelings as “natural for anybody”.

She added: “[Afterwards] I was like cuddle me!”
