No longer in the running for the 2013 title after being voted off the show in recent weeks, Tamera and Sam were free to let their hair down at a star-studded launch party for CAKO & CAKO Kids at the Sanctum Soho Hotel in London on Tuesday night (10 December).
We already knew Tamera and Sam were firm friends (or more?!) but who knew Katie had joined their gang?!
Perhaps they were getting some advice on where to go next from someone who has already been through the whole process? However they met, it's clear Tamera and Katie are getting on famously already as Katie couldn't resist puckering up to her new pal on the red carpet.
Tamera, 16, and Katie, 27, went for similar cropped black bralets and leather jackets but Tamera teamed hers with a high-waisted pencil skirt and flats, while Katie opted for faded denim and sky high heels.
Sam, meanwhile, looked very dapper in his leather trousers and blazer.
Tamera and Sam posed together on the red carpet for pictures that will no doubt once again fuel all those romance rumours. The young couple were romantically linked during their time on X Factor and Tamera appeared to hint something had happened in an interview with Reveal, teasing: "Me and Sam are very, very close, it could be true. Anything could happen"
The X Factor final airs this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV, with Sam Bailey, Nicholas McDonald and Luke Friend battling to win the 2013 crown.
