X Factor's Emily Middlemas has denied she and Ryan Lawrie have got engaged.

The pair of last year's finalists were a couple throughout the competition but have no plans to tie the not just yet.

Emily laughed off rumours that a wedding was on the cards, saying: “We are definitely not going to get married this year or next year. We are far too young.”

The Scottish singers auditioned separately for The X Factor in 2016 and both got as far as the live shows, with Ryan finishing in sixth place and Emily making it as far as the semi-finals before finishing in fourth.

Speaking about their relationship, Emily told the Daily Record newspaper this weekend: "We know each other inside out. We have known each other for four years and were friends for three before I agreed to go out with him. That’s the secret to a really good relationship – get to know them before going out with them.”

And she gushed over Ryan: “He’s always charming and romantic. I’m not too bothered about flowers although he got me a rose for my birthday. And he got me a necklace I wear all the time. It’s a tree.

"We often go to Glasgow Green and sit on the benches underneath the trees. That’s our place. We love going for walks in parks and looking at the scenery so the necklace is a nice reminder of that.”

Following last year's live shows, Ryan and Emily will reunite with the other top eight finalists for this Spring's arena tour which starts in Nottingham next Friday.
