Rumours are swirling around about a secret romance between two of The X Factor 2016 contestants.
While Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie's relationship was very much in the open, at least two other live show finalists have been enjoying a secret fling.
The same sex duo's romance was first reported last weekend, with a source claiming: "Their fans have no idea they are a couple. Both get a lot of tweets from girls but they aren't interested.
"They are flattered by the attention but they are smitten with one another."
Now according to the Daily Star newspaper, the pair have been caught sneaking off for 'private romps'.
Apparently one of the couple has been escaping the X Factor house during the week to sleep at the other's house.
"All the contestants had a day off on a Thursday as a rest day," a source explained to the tabloid. "They knew that the live shows are the most important part of the series as they had so much to rehearse, but it seems they had a one-track mind."
However it seems it's not quite the same loved up romance that Emily and Ryan have been enjoying throughout the show.
"[One of the couple] has been caught getting it on with other members of The X Factor team – they are a dirt bag," the source alleged.
And in more gossip, the source spilled: "The pair recently had a bust-up after one of them was caught kissing another contestant."
They concluded: "They are like dogs on heat."
The X Factor 2016 continues tonight at 8PM on ITV with the live final.
5 After Midnight, Matt Terry and Saara Aalto all remain the competition.
