UK X Factor contestant Jade Ellis has denied that she has the hots for rival MK1’s Charlie Rundle.

In an interview with new! magazine Ellis, 25, revealed that she has a soft spot for the blonde singer despite having a long-term girlfriend, Heba Elgamel.

The mother of six-year-old Caiden said: ‘Well, Charlie has a serious partner too, but I’ve been doing a little flirting with her.

‘Although it’s really only been a little bit of fun.’

However, speaking on This Morning she denied there was anything more between the two than friendship.

‘We have a connection, as most of the people in the house do,’ she said.

Ellis has been tipped as the ‘dark horse’ of the competition by judge Gary Barlow.

Meanwhile the mother of other favorite Lucy Spraggon has claimed the 21-year-old lesbian singer-songwriter wanted to be a boy when she was younger.

Anstey Spraggan said her daughter used to cut her hair short, wear boxers and call herself Max.

Lucy has known she was gay for a long time and reportedly sent her first Valentine’s card to another girl when she was just seven years old.

Her mother says she came out to her when she was 14.

‘We were walking up the drive to our house when she began to chant, "I’m gay, I’m gay, I’m gay,’ she explained.

‘I’d had a long day at work and my reaction was to chant back "I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care" followed by a brief explanation that my other two children haven’t felt the need to shout "I’m straight, I’m straight, I’m straight" and then I went indoors to make the dinner.’
