Just when you thought this year’s case of X Factor rumoured relationships, break-ups and all the sexytimes in between couldn’t get any weirder, we present to you the case of Stevi Ritchie (again) and Xtra Factor host Sarah-Jane Crawford.
Yep, this is a real rumour everyone – and it looks like the Irish one, Louis Walsh, is doing some SERIOUS shi-take mushroom stirring for it!
LEAVE IT OUT LOULOU.
After all that did-they-didn’t-they-oh-christ-they-actually-did drama Stevi and fellow ex-finalist Chloe-Jasmine were caught in, we naively thought that perhaps the worst of the X Factor love drama was dead and buried.
Oh how very, VERY wrong we were.
Thanks to the 62-year-old who plonks his bum on the end of the judging panel every week, a row has apparently kicked off between him and Sarah-Jane over an alleged romp with – yep you guessed it – STEVI.
Has this man got special seducing powers or something?!
During Saturday’s Xtra Factor, LouLou continually bugged Sarah-Jane about her supposed sexytime, saying: “How about Stevi and you? Is that still going on? “Last week they were in the hotel in Wembley. Everybody knows.”
Obviously, SJC wasn’t best pleased with the comments, hitting back saying: “Oh shut up, you! Old news, move on!”
We’re not sure we could’ve come back with something so polite so well done Sarah-Jane!
Even after calling him “boring,” Louis apparently didn’t get the message to SHUT UP and MOVE ON, adding: “Stevi thinks it’s real. Stevi, call her!”
God, it’s like being back in secondary school isn’t it? STOP TRYING TO MAKE #Starah HAPPEN, IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
Sarah-Jane has previously (and forcefully) denied any backstage sexytimes, with a source telling The Sun: “Sarah-Jane knows there is no truth in the rumours about her and Stevi. While she is always game for a laugh, she thought Louis went too far.”
Stevi’s been victim to 99.999999% of this year’s romance rumours, with lover Chloe-Jasmine only recently confirming that they did indeed do the dirty. SCANDAL.
The 24-year-old told The Sun: “Stevi’s a great guy. Our romance happened organically – we were talking about spiritual plains and then we kissed.
“It was very innocent. But to me, love should be unconditional. I made a mistake. You should be able to make a mistake and be forgiven.”
We’re starting to think they should make The X Factor into a soap opera and just be done with it now.
Sidenote: anyone got some gaffer tape to put over Louis’ mouth please?
