X Factor's Chloe-Jasmine Whichello has said she doesn't understand why people are surprised she's dating Stevi Ritchie.

The singers met on the last series of X Factor and struck up a friendship which turned to romance just before Christmas.

Appearing on today's ITV's Lorraine, she said: "It's so strange people say [we are an unlikely couple] and we don't understand that at all. It's not like he's dating a panda! It's a quite a normal relationship."

Stevi, however, appeared to play down his attributes, saying: "She's beautiful and I'm the runt of the litter. I get that, Lorraine."

When Chloe insisted he wasn't a runt, he replied: "I am babe, you're pretty, you are a model, you are beautiful and all that. I'm just me."

Stevi added: "I always wanted to find love but I never expected it would be with Chloe. I mean the first time I saw her I looked at her, I was like, 'you're funny but not my cup of tea,."

Perhaps because of her style at the time? "I was wearing a wedding dress," she said. "It was vintage."
