Despite living alongside each other in the X Factor mansion, it appears Relley and Jay - full name Jordan Lee - were already secretly friends.
Taking to Instagram, Relley C - who was given the boot in week three of this year's live shows - has shared a throwback picture of herself and Jay, which was taken three years ago.
Now, we know Relley auditioned for The X Factor in 2013...so did Jay too?
The photo shows Jay posing alongside two friends and with his arm around Relley. Relley told her followers: "Look at what I found, true me @jaylee_official go way back, to the black and white hair days! so proud of u son #2013to2016 #thexfactoruk."
Fans have been quick to comment, while admitting they had no idea the pair were already pals. One asked: "Omg, you know each other?!"
Relley and Jay aren't the only X Factor 2016 contestants who knew each other before the competition kicked off either.
Cute couple Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie began dating before the show hit our screens!
