X Factor star Craig Colton is reportedly dating former contestant Danyl Johnson.
The pair have apparently been seeing each other for around two weeks after meeting backstage at the the ITV1 singing competition.
Colton was spotted kissing Johnson on London's South Bank on Sunday night, and he rushed back from a Children in Need gala dinner in Manchester to go shopping with him on Wednesday, The Sun reports.
They later went to see Ghost the Musical in the West End and left in Johnson's car. Colton tweeted the next day: "Had a great night with my pal @DanylAJohnson."
A source said: "They're very much the item. They've become inseparable and text non-stop when they're not together.
"Everyone thought they were just swapping war stories from their experiences on the show, but it turns out it's blossomed."
Meanwhile, fellow contestant Marcus Collins is said to be concerned that Colton's new romance is distracting him from X Factor rehearsals.
The source added: "Marcus has told Craig he needs to concentrate on his performances and not get distracted. He's worried for his friend."
