Union J star Casey Johnson and his girlfriend Betsy-Blue English will appear in E4's brand new reality show, Stage School.

Yup. The X Factor couple will be hitting our screens and fans will get to follow them as they join other showbiz hopefuls at the D&B Academy of Performing Arts in Kent.

Stage School will centre around Casey and Betsy's experience at the performing arts school, along with a number of other 18-25 years old who are hoping to become a star. Speaking about his time on the show to our friends at Digital Spy, Casey admitted it had been "tougher" than The X Factor.

Now we're intrigued...

Casey said: "It's different. But it's harder than The X Factor. There are egos, arguments, drama. It's going to be so good."

He revealed that some of those arguments are between himself and his girlfriend Betsy, and Betsy added that she is nervous about how she will come across to those tuning in.

Stage School will also feature Jacqueline Jossa's cousin Megan, and Betsy admits that she and Megan don't exactly see eye-to-eye at first. Eek!

Although the show will follow the day-to-day lives of its cast, it's been dubbed to be the "real life Glee" as every so often the students will break into song. Stage School's executive producer Jonathan Stadlen has said: "We follow the day-to-day stories of the students and then they break into song – big musical numbers that everyone knows."

Casey and Betsy are no strangers to the cameras, thanks to their appearance on The X Factor back in 2014. While Betsy was part of a band, Only The Young, Casey auditioned as a soloist and was put into boyband Stereo Kicks later in the competition.

Following the show, Only The Young and Stereo Kicks have both split. Casey, meanwhile, has been snapped up by Union J and became the band's fourth member following the departure of George Shelley.

Casey and Betsy have been dating for over a year.
