- Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie cannot get intimate
- The guards surround the contestants 24/7
- There is no time or privacy for intimacy
Scottish Emily Middlemas and Glaswegian boy friend Ryan Lawrie do not have the privacy or the time to spend in any sort intimate behaviour. The X-factor house is heavily guarded.
Sometimes Ryan and her sit on the staircase to chat but the guards are right there at the bottom of the stairs so even stealing a kiss is not really possible. They are always surrounded by people. She stressed that time restrictions also prohibit them from visiting in each others’ rooms. Their time in the house is extremely busy.
Simon Cowell has placed a ban on any intimate relations between the contestants. This ban is a long standing one. The guards are there to ensure this doesn’t happen as well as their other duties. The guards are on duty 24/7.
As far as the competition goes, Emily and Ryan may find themselves in a sing off. So far neither has been in the bottom two contestants and have survived two weeks of the live competition.
If they were to sing off against each other, Emily hopes that they will each do their best and is confident that nothing will happen to wreck their romance.
