He's her shoulder to cry on, but can she trust him not to break her heart?
Olly, 25, has never hidden his feelings for her, but until now we never knew how 20-year-old Stacey felt. But that all changed on Movie Theme night, Now‘s source reveals.
‘After Stacey finished her performance, she was sobbing hysterically backstage in one of the rooms used by all the contestants.
‘It was causing a massive commotion with all the other acts, so Olly took her to one side, ushered everyone out and locked the door.
‘He was being fiercely protective, like a concerned boyfriend,’ reveals the insider.
‘It was the talk of the judges as to what it was all about, as it was right next to their dressing rooms. Everyone thinks she’s upset over all the gossip about their romance. We’re all 100 per cent convinced something is going on.
‘Stacey finds all the fuss hard to handle, but her feelings seem clear. During rehearsals and public appearances they make an effort not to be seen or pictured together, when it’s so obvious to friends that they’re extremely close and have feelings for each other.’
