‘I love him, me,’ Vicky, 28, told presenters Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson.

‘He got us all hot down the collar in that green room.’

The pair were in heap of giggles afterwards and their saucy antics had viewers hopeful that this could be the start of something beautiful.

In fact some even think that Vicky and Christian – a Newcastle lady and a younger X Factor-born singer – could potentially take the place of another celebrity couple with a similar story…

‘the new Cheryl & liam,’ one Twitter user said of the duo.

Hear that, Cheryl and Liam Payne? You’ve got competition, apparently – Chiam vs Vickian, anyone?
