Pregnant Fearne Cotton and BFF X Factor’s Kye Sones go for catch-up lunch, probably talk about baby bumps and Union J

Best friends Fearne Cotton and Kye Sones were seen heading out for a spot of lunch earlier today.

Equipped with a giant umbrella to fight off the rain (where’s the snow gone?) the pair were seen laughing together despite the miserable weather.

And they looked particularly tickled by a photo Fearne was holding.

Perhaps they had hijacked Nick Grimshaw’s breakfast show photobooth for a spur of the moment photo shoot?

Ahead of the lunch date, Kye Sones was clearly excited to be meeting friend Fearne Cotton.

He tweeted: “Meeting the bezzie @fearnecotton for lunch in town! #goodtimes”

And the two probably had a lot to catch up on.

Since leaving the X Factor, Kye had been rumoured to be replacing Christopher Maloney on the tour after he managed to upset just about everyone during rehearsals for the live final.

However, it now seems that Christopher will remain on the tour, with Kye’s participation yet to be confirmed.

Kye Sones has been keeping himself busy in other ways, revealing that he had spent the day song writing for fellow X Factor act Union J earlier this week.

He tweeted: “Wicked song written today for the @unionjworld boys! :-)”

Pregnant Fearne Cotton is currently counting down the days until she goes on maternity leave, finishing her Radio One show on Christmas Eve.
