'X Factor' stars Chenai and Shayne have denied that they are romantically involved, following media reports which suggested that they are a couple.

In an interview posted on the show's official website the pair denied the rumours, when asked if there was any truth to the claims. "Not at all!" said Chenai. "I thought I’d just clear that up!"

"Apparently we're expecting a baby as well," fellow contestant Shayne said. "Yeah, and we're going to call it Shaynai," he joked.

Shayne also said: "Let them print silly stories: if they think we're getting married next week, let them believe it."
