The X Factor finalists Gifty Louise and 5 After Midnight's Jordan Lee have been sparking romance rumours with cosy looking Snapchats…

Ooh, interesting!

We already know finalists Ryan Lawrie and Emily Middlemas are dating – they met four years ago and have been together eight months – but could Gifty and Jordan be the second couple on this year's X Factor?

A source told The Sun: "Gifty and Jordan have been inseparable since entering the house but they are trying to keep things low key. It's still very much early days for them both and they don't want to risk their friendship, or chances in the competition, by flaunting their feelings for each other."

The pair have been pictured laughing and smiling together as they headed into X Factor rehearsals last week, and appear on each other's Snapchat accounts. One Snapchat video, posted over the live show weekend, shows Gifty giving Jordan a kiss on the cheek as they walk around backstage at Fountain Studios.

Neither Gifty nor Jordan has confirmed whether they are dating: rather cryptically, Jordan told Now magazine: "We looked pretty frisky in those pictures. But I'll leave that for you to find out."

Of course, they could just be good friends…

When we met with the X Factor finalists last week, they ALL told us how friendly everyone was in the house and how much they'd all bonded together already.

Gifty said: "Everyone gets along. I was so surprised. We all genuinely support each other. We understand it's a competition but we just want to be there for each other. Not just among our own category, but the other categories as well. We just gel together."

The next live show is Saturday night with a Motown theme. It starts from 8pm on ITV.

Meanwhile, official X Factor couple Ryan Lawrie and Emily Middlemas have both been speaking this week about how great it is to have each other in the competition.

And, no, they're not worried about a possible sing off face off!

"These things happen," said Emily. "It's not the end of the world. We still have lots of years left in our lives. We're young! It's a competition. It's just setting a platform for us. It's the start. After this competition, when we go into the music industry, that will be tougher than just a sing off.

"Whatever happens, happens. It would be nice for either of us to go far in the competition."

Ryan added: "We have discussed it but we're really supportive of each other and whatever happens, happens. Whoever goes or stays, we support each other."

The X Factor airs Saturday and Sunday, 8pm on ITV.
