"They are thrilled they've both got far enough to get on the tour. It means they can spend more time together next year."

There is even an accompanying grainy snap of the pair HOLDING HANDS!

The pair were spotted having a romantic stroll outside the contestant's hotel.

So now it's pretty much official can we first of all say what a gorge couple they do make!

We reckon this is the best X Factor romance ever, and we reckon they should record some sort of duet in time for Christmas.
