Love can spring up in the weirdest of places...

Every reality show under the sun seems to have the contestants hooking up and now The Apprentice – the show about business – is next, with Jessica Cunningham and Courtney Wood hooking up outside the boardroom.

While they are on opposite teams – Jessica is on Team Nebular and Courtney is on Team Titan – when the cameras are off, it’s been getting all flirty.

But they aren’t the only ones: Grainne McCoy and Paul Sullivan have been ‘flirting’ in the house as well! Cheeky.

A source told The Mirror: ‘Both couples would suddenly disappear and there were several times they’d be found upstairs under the covers, kissing.

‘Production team researchers had to go into one of the girl’s rooms and tell the boys to move back into their own beds.’


Grainne and Paul hooked up after the first task together, which say the contestants try to flog some antiques.

But they later got an even bigger telling off after they watched a rom-com in bed together.

If that wasn’t risqué enough, Jessica gave her partner Courtney the nickname ‘C-Dubz’, and they’ve been cuddling when things got a bit tough.

Unfortunately, the romances weren’t to be, as Courtney ‘isn’t ready to settle down’ yet and Paul and Grainne ‘lived too far apart’.

They aren’t the only ones breaking the competition rules for late night rendezvous. The X Factor couple Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie have allegedly been bending the ‘no going into each other’s rooms’ rule by hooking up with each other on the STAIRS of ITV’s house.

A source told The Sun: ‘Emily and Ryan have been getting frisky on the stairs late at night.

‘They’re banned from going in each other’s rooms so have found a way to bend the rules and head to the stairs for their hook-ups instead when they think all the other contestants are asleep.’
