The X Factor’s Eoghan Quigg and Diana Vickers have gone public with their relationship.

The contestants were snapped smooching backstage after the final of the ITV show on Saturday.

‘That wasn’t just a friendship kiss,’ says a source. ‘They are definitely girlfriend and boyfriend.

‘They have been on such a rollercoaster together. There were lots of tears. They have really fallen for each other.’

But the couple didn’t get to spend much time together.

Eoghan, 16, had to leave to attend a family party, while Diana had to play a gig at Nightingales club in Birmingham.

‘She was gutted she had to leave him behind at the celebrations,’ the source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘She’d have liked to have stayed by his side all night.’

Diana, 17, split with boyfriend Chris Jones, 18, last week.
