The X Factor's Tamera Foster has exclusively revealed that she is NOT dating One Direction's Niall Horan but hinted that she IS dating former co-star Sam Callahan.

Tamera, 16, has been linked to both eligible bachelors in the past few weeks, but it seems one potential romance is more on than the other one.

When asked about the rumours of love with both1D's Niall and former X Factor contestant Sam, Tamera was happy to set the record straight.

"The Niall one is definitely not true, because I only met him once when he came to the show, Tamera, who met Niall backstage at The X Factor, told Reveal.

"Me and Sam are very, very close, it could be true. Anything could happen." Hmm, we definitely sense a relationship blossoming here!

Tamera was voted off The X Factor in last night's dramatic show. After her sing-off with Luke Friend, the show went into deadlock, where it was eventually announced that Tamera would be leaving. She also told us about about her disappointment.

"I'm gutted cause it was one of the most amazing things that I've ever done," Tamera admitted. "But I'm just a 16-year-old, so to get that far in a competition is just absolutely amazing for me."

Tamera was also accused of being a diva on the show, with rumours of the singer being a "nightmare" to work with.

But she had her own opinion on the whisperings. "I'm not a diva. I understand that I'm in a working environment so I've got to make it easy for everyone. That was a false accusation."

The singer had suffered a few blows recently, as she forgot the lyrics to her song on the live show for two consecutive weeks, when singing James Arthur's 'Impossible' and Shirley Bassey's 'Diamonds Are Forever'. She admitted that it was the lowest point of her X Factor experience.

Tamera said: "Forgetting my words on the live show was really difficult to deal with. Trying to overcome it was quite hard.

"I loved every second about it (the show) I'm a strong believer in that everything happens for a reason. If it was meant to be, it's meant to be."

With Nicole Scherzinger being Tamera's mentor on the show, we also found out what the 35-year-old singer is really like.

"I love Nicole, she's really great," Tamera gushed. "She's funny, easy-going and down to earth. She's cool to hang out with and was the best mentor to ask for. When we were at bootcamp, I was hoping it would be Nicole."

Now that Tamera is no longer in the competition, she is rooting for boyband Rough Copy to win the show.

"They have the best work ethic out of everybody," Tamera added. "They put in everything all the time and you can see it in their performances. You can really tell they put everything in and they are amazing guys. I really think they deserve to win."
