X Factor couple Stevi Ritchie and Chloe-Jasmine Whichello have NOT married. Instead, they have decided to have a blessing.

Reports had claimed that Stevi and Chloe were preparing to tie the knot on a luxury yacht in Cyprus. While the engaged couple did host a ceremony onboard a yacht last week, they decided not to go through with a wedding, but have a commitment ceremony instead.

Why? The couple revealed that too many people had been interfering with their marriage plans and Chloe admitted her family didn't agree with her marrying Stevi (who still lives with his parents), as he doesn't have his own house.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Chloe revealed: "We were going to get married, but my family didn't agree with Stephen not having a house, so that's why we're not getting married."

She then added that Stevi still has to "earn her family's trust back" following their brief split. Back in April, it was reported that Stevi and Chloe had called time on their relationship. Stevi, however, denied their break up was permanent and revealed he and Chloe were taking some time apart, but were trying to sort things out between them.

It was said "busy work schedules" had put strain on their romance, and Chloe was forced to hit back at claims her relationship with Stevi had "turned toxic."

Shedding some light on the real reasons for their break, Chloe revealed she and Stevi are still planning to get married in the future, adding: "He's got to earn my family's trust back first. Some things he's done they don't agree with."

Stevi admitted: "I've said some horrible sh*t. We all make mistakes. I'm only human... I did say some nasty things to her in the spur of the moment due to my insecurities. The comments really upset her and I said things that are not normal to say to a loved one. I totally regret it."

Now, Stevi and Chloe are back on track and their recent blessing is proof of that.

Chloe explained the purpose behind the ceremony and said: "It's a promise that we're going to get married. It will only put good vibes into our relationship after all the sh*t we've been through."

Stevi added: "Chloe cried and then I had a tear in my eye. She looked gorgeous. It was quite emotional. We feel closer than ever. We're so in love and we've been through so much."

The couple first met while both appeared on The X Factor back in 2014. After the show, they began dating and Chloe and Stevi announced their engagement the following year.

They went on to appear on Celebrity Big Brother in August 2015 as one contestant and finished in fifth place on the show.
