X Factor's Kingsland Road 'Have Secret Girlfriends'
Two members of boyband reported to be hiding relationships to win votes...
Two members of The X Factor boyband Kingsland Road are claimed to have been keeping relationships secret from the voting public.
The Sun newspaper claims that Matt Cahill and JJ Thompson have both got girlfriends, but have been presenting themselves as single in the hope of gaining more popularity.
A source told the paper that 24-year-old Matt has been dating dancer Hannah Thistleton for months, and said: "She's not happy he's been saying he's single and she's to stay in the shadows."
And a friend of 22-year-old JJ claimed he is also in a relationship with an unnamed woman, and said: "It's a serious thing. He's not single, far from it."
A source on the show was quoted as saying: "Kingsland Road are playing the game like so many boybands before them.
"They've been saying in interviews they're all single because they desperately want the girls to fancy them and vote for them.
"It's extremely cynical to be spinning lies, but X Factor brings out the ruthless side in anyone."
Lorna Simpson was voted off the show last weekend.
