They have been keeping the secret under wraps for weeks but now that the X Factor is over they have now gone public with their romance.
One Direction’s Zain Malik (17) and Belle Amie’s Geneva Lane (20) was caught on camera kissing and holding hands in front of photographers as they left the ITV studios together for the last time.
Their three year age gap is obviously not a concern for the pair, as 20-year-old Geneva wrapped her arms around 17-year-old Malik’s neck affectionately.
Malik later announced on Twitter that he and his fellow X Factor finalist are an item after previously denying that they were together.
He tweeted: “Listen fans I still love you all dont be jelous and hate on @genevalane were together whether yuu hate or not (sic).”
Malik and Lane, were first linked together when they moved into the X Factor house before the live shows.
