It doesn't take long for The X Factor lot to reach the heady heights of fame these days - contestant Kye Sones has already bagged himself a celebrity romance.
The heart-throb, who is being mentored by Gary Barlow, has been enjoying flirty texts with Inbetweeners beauty Emily Atack, after she appeared on The Xtra Factor last week.
According to reports it was love at first sight for Kye, who couldn't wait to ask the blonde bombshell for her number.
A source tells The Sun: "When Kye saw Emily his eyes nearly popped out of his head. He has always fancied her but never imagined he'd get to be in the same room as her.
"And it turned out she has a soft spot for him so they got on like a house on fire."
The pair is reportedly preparing to go on a date next week in between Kye's rehearsals.
The new romance comes after it was revealed the former chimney sweep dumped his fashion editor girlfriend Halle Carlson before he got to the boot camp stages of the show.
