  • Rumours of a blossoming relationship with fellow X Factor contestant Olly Murs

    After weeks of drama and speculation,
    Stacy Soloman has finally opened up about her
    blossoming relationship with fellow X Factor contestant Olly Murs.

    Single mother Stacey – who took to the ice with mentor Dannii Minogue yesterday – said, ‘I love Olly, he’s my best mate in the house.’

    The only girl left in the competition, Stacey also revealed that Olly stopped her walking out of the X Factor.

    She said, ‘I was in tears, really distraught, ready to walk out the door and Olly came over, gave me a cuddle and I was like, back in the game. Here I am!’

    And now it seems there is a blossoming relationship between the Essex pair – so could our first X Factor romance be on the cards?

    The budding stars were reportedly seen kissing backstage after a performance two weeks ago.

    An insider revealed: ‘Stacey and Olly have stopped trying to hide it. Once they’d finished the show, they met her mum. Olly wasn’t nervous.

    ‘He and Fiona chatted like old friends for half an hour. His arm was round Stacey’s waist all the time – they were like a married couple.’

    But with the competition hotting up, will Stacey and Olly feel the pressure?

    Last week Danyl Johnson threatened to quit over song choices, and on Monday it was the turn of Lloyd Daniels, who was on the verge of walking out over stress.

    Who do you think will be going home this weekend? Is the time is finally up for Lloyd? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
