Speaking exclusively in the new issue of Reveal magazine, aspiring popstar Emily tells us that the couple are watching the pennies as they save for a dream holiday.

"We're planning to travel around the UK and do gigs together [once The X Factor has ended], and maybe go on holiday," said Emily.

"We want to go to the Maldives, so we're going to save up. We want to be smart and make sure we are where we want to be with our careers first, then that'll be the next step."

When we point out the Maldives is a rather popular engagement spot, Emily laughs: "One step at a time!"

Ryan, 20, and Emily, 18, met about four years ago on the Glasgow gigging circuit. Their friendship turned to romance around nine months ago.

They auditioned separately for the X Factor and both made it through to live shows.

Talented couple, right?!

Ryan was sent home two weeks ago after losing out to Honey G in the Movie Week sing off, while Emily has made it through to the semi-final, which has a Christmas Week theme.

It meant they never had to face each other in a sing off, which was no doubt a relief to the couple.

Ryan is now (obviously!) supporting Emily for the win, telling ITV's Lorraine last week: "I think she's already won it no matter what, but yes, I think she'll win it."

X Factor continues Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
