The sweet couple chatted about their romance to The Sun, and how living together in the £3.6 million X Factor mansion has taken their relationship to a new level. Ryan, 20, said: "It's our first time living together so it's definitely fast-forwarded our relationship.
"I'm happy we'll go through the experience together and help each other through any tough moments - we're not allowed to share a room, though!"
"It’s nice to have someone who actually knows you in the house", Emily added. "He knows me inside out. I'd be a little lost if I didn't have him."
