Cast your minds back to a time before the latest series of Ex On The Beach, Celebrity Big Brother and Celebs Go Dating. A time when we got our fix of reality TV dramz from The X Factor.

If we're honest, last year's show was probably the most contro series yet, thanks mainly to our main gal Honey G, but also because there was a load of X Factor hook ups, about 95959285 cries of fixing scandals and even an announcement about an X Factor baby.

Kieran Alleyne from 5 After Midnight found out that his girlfriend, Sophie Johnson, was pregnant back in October – when the band had made it through to the Judges' Houses stage of the competition.

However, the pair have now decided to split, despite Sophie being weeks away from giving birth.

Kieran insists the pair – who were together for around 16 months – are still friends and will work together to raise the baby. Speaking to The Sun, he explained: "I know she will be the most amazing mother to our son. I’m looking forward to us starting a new chapter together as great friends and committed parents to our baby boy.

"We are both incredibly excited to welcome him into the world together."

A spokesperson also told the newspaper: "We can confirm Kieran and Sophie are no longer together. They remain close friends."

In other X Factor news, the show could be about to TOTALLY change and basically become an entirely different program.

Because they're apparently essentially SCRAPPING LIVE SHOWS, just having a Britain's Got Talent-esque week of them rather than the 39499292 weeks (or thereabouts) they had before.


An insider said, according to The Sun: "The X Factor executives feel it needs a shake-up with big changes to the format. They have been discussing having just a few weeks of live shows - so people get to know the singers - and then one big finals week."
