Sam Callahan and Sam Bailey starred together on the tenth series of X Factor in 2013, so it's no surprise they're close friends.

So close that Sam C even planted a kiss on Sam B at her album launch party!

A kiss for Sam from Sam!

Well, a kiss on her poster, anyway!

Cheeky popstar Sam C was among the celebrities who supported Sam B's big night on Thursday (4 August), and couldn't resist planting a kiss on a huge poster of Sam B while walking the red carpet.

Mother-of-three Sam B, 39, landed the Christmas number one in 2013 with her cover of Demi Lovato's 'Skyscraper', supported Beyonce on tour, and achieved a number one album with her debut record The Power of Love.

She then left Simon Cowell's Syco Music label, flying to the US to work on second album Sing My Heart Out.

The first single from the album, 'Sing My Heart Out', is available now on iTunes. It was co-written by A1 star and singer-songwriter Ben Adams, who was also at the big launch. He's worked on numerous tracks on the album.

Sam B recently told her local paper, Leicester Mercury, that the song is dedicated to husband Craig and their children Brooke, Tommy and Miley.
