Has Stereo Kicks star Casey Johnson found love? We think so!

The X Factors annual tour is due to kick off in Belfast tomorrow, but this year it isn’t the soon-to-be on stage antics causing a stir amongst fans.

No, it’s the apparent budding romance between Stereo Kicks star Casey Johnson and Only The Young beauty Betsy-Blue English.

The pair, who are about to embark on the five week tour of the country together along with their respective bands, seem to have been secretly dating since December.

Pictured strolling around Westfield’s shopping centre days after Christmas, cosying up on cute family meals together in January and liking each other’s selfies on Instagram in between – they can’t help but make you smile.

Although neither of their musical efforts helped them take the title of 2014 X Factor winner which was scooped by Ben Haenow, they’ve won our hearts instead. Good enough prize, right?

Let’s hope they have a happier ending than previous stars of the show Diana Vickers and Eoghan Quigg whose super cute 2008 love didn’t quite end in marriage, followed by a baby in a baby carriage. Much to our dismay.

After being snapped on their series of dates, Betsy and Casey seem set to become the third couple from last year’s set of 12 finalists.

Which statistically, is quite something isn’t it?

There must be something in the water in The X Factor House! Or they’ve all been reading Fifty Shades of Grey?

Following Betsy’s Only The Young band mate Charlie George‘s relationship rumours following his closeness to fellow finalist Lauren Platt, in this week’s Now you can also read our exclusive interview with Stevi Ritchie who confesses his love for contestant Chloe-Jasmine Whichello.

Stevi also states Chloe, who didn’t make the line-up, will be joining him behind the scenes on the tour… which is quickly going from a leading music stage show to, um, a couples retreat?
