Former X Factor star Betsy-Blue English has admitted that filming with boyfriend and Union J star Casey Johnson has "not been easy", but she's not worried.

Fans of the couple will know that they are currently starring together on E4 show Stage School. The reality series follows Betsy and Casey, and a slew of other hopefuls wanting to crack showbiz, throughout their time at the D & B Academy of Performing Arts.

But being on camera and the "bitchy environment" that they've found themselves in, Betsy admits things have become a little strained between herself and her beau...

But she's not too concerned. Oh no!

Speaking to Daily Star, Betsy insisted that, if anything, the hard times they have had on the show will only make the pair stronger as a couple going forward.

She said: "It is a massive strain on our relationship. To film a 30-part series, being with each other every day and have these obstacles – it's not easy, but if we can get through seven months of intense filming like this then we've done pretty well."

For sure.

Betsy's latest comments come after she revealed her worries over how she will be perceived on the show. Casey, meanwhile, told our friends over at Digital Spy that filming for Stage School has been "harder" than The X Factor.

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

Casey and Betsy first started dating in 2015, shortly after they wrapped filming for X Factor's eleventh series. They have now been together for over a year and Casey even has a tattoo dedicated to girlfriend Betsy on his wrist.

A blue heart for Betsy-Blue. Cute!

You can catch Casey and Betsy on Stage School every night on E4.
