Two more 'Popstars' rejects dating
Kelli Young of Liberty X - the group formed from the losers in series one - and Phixx singer Peter Smith - who sensationally pulled out of the second series after lying about his age - are now an item.
The newspaper claims that the pair have been secretly dating for the past two-and-a-half months, with Kelli flying to Dublin to see in the New Year with Peter and his family.
“Peter fancied her from the moment they met and started hassling his manager to set them up. It started with a few low-key dates and has really blossomed into a full-on romance," a friend of the couple said. “It helps that they have been through similar experiences by losing on their talent shows. They both know how to deal with disappointment only for things to come good.
“They are besotted with each other and spend as much time together as their schedules permit. Kelli had a lovely time in Dublin and Peter’s family really took to her. They’re amazed that it has taken this long for the news to get out — but they did go to enormous lengths to keep it under wraps.???
Peter's bandmate Mikey Green is similarly dating a fellow Popstars contestant, Sarah Harding of winning girl group Girls Aloud.
