Is it just us, or is this year's X Factor full of just really, really beautiful people? Oh, and they're all ridiculously talented, too. Which, if you ask us, is just plain unfair.

Seriously, all the girls are absolute flames and the boys have our hearts racing non-stop from 8pm on Saturday through to 9:30pm on a Sunday night.

At one point on last night's show, we were so mesmerised by Myles from Rak-Su's eyes we managed to drop our dinner down our top and knock a boiling hot cup of tea all over our housemate. It was a bit of a mess.

Anyway, in our humble opinion, King of all the X Factor fitlords this year is Matt Linnen, who's in Nicole Scherzinger's Overs category.

And we're about to go and weep into our cornflakes, as he's reportedly struck up a romance with his fellow contestant Grace Davies.

They've allegedly been hooking up in the contestants' house, but all hope is not lost as it's reportedly "just for fun". Whatever that means.

"Matt and Grace aren’t dating – it was basically just for fun," a source told the Daily Star.

"They now act as if nothing has happened."

Does this mean we're still in with a chance?

The source then added: "There are a lot of attractive people in the house so some contestants are bound to be hooking up."

Check out all the X Factor contestants' live show makeovers:

It's a shame Sam Black just got engaged, because his new look has turned him into even more of a FITLORD than he already was. We're loving the smart new haircut.
