The X Factor couple Ryan Lawrie and Emily Middlemas are apparently so loved up they can't stop kissing in the finalists' mansion!

That's according to fellow finalist Gifty Louise, anyway, who joked to Reveal: "Emily and Ryan are well suited, but I just don't like seeing it in my face every time I turn around – kissing, kissing, kissing. Oh, get out of my face!"

When we tell Emily, she laughs: "What can I say? We don't kiss all the time, we hug – but we are together…"

Ryan, 20, and Emily, 18, met several years ago while gigging in their native Scotland and have been a couple for around eight months. They made their romance public after making Judges' Houses.

Their romance has been fast forwarded as they've moved in together at the X Factor contestants' mansion in North London – but they do have separate bedrooms!

Emily told us: "I'm sharing with Gifty, Samantha [Lavery], Saara [Aalto] and Relley C. It's a really nice room and we get on well. We haven't being fighting for the shower just yet!"

She added: "It's not weird living together [with Ryan] because we see each other all the time back home anyway… We've been rehearsing together and singing each other's songs top see if there's anything [we need] to work on. We've always done that."

The finalists are currently rehearsing for Saturday night's second live show, which is Motown themed. Bratavio were the first act to be eliminated this year when they went home after this week's Express Yourself show.

Meanwhile, Brooks Way have left the competition following allegations about Josh's private life, and girlband Four of Diamonds have been drafted in to replace them.
