Rumours are rife that Cher Lloyd and One Direction star Zayn Malik have started an X Factor romance.
The News of the World reported on Sunday that the two had shared a kiss during a party in the reality show house.
Lloyd has already been linked with Liam and Harry from the teen boyband but speculation about Malik apparently has more substance.
According to the tabloid the pair's mentors Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole are aware of the budding romance.
Whether the rumours are true or not, the pair join the remaining nine acts on Sunday night to see if they will be returning for next week's show.
