X Factor star dumped over cheating rumours

It certainly hasn’t been the best week for X Factor star Lauren Platt.

As well as suffering from a rather nasty bout of the flu, the star has also reportedly been dumped.


According to reports, the young singer’s boyfriend, Liam Baker, broke up with her after rumours emerged that she was secretly seeing fellow contestant Charlie George, from boy band Only The Young.

A source told The Sun that heartbroken Liam called time on their relationship over stories of her sneaking into Charlie’s room, despite her denying the claims.

“Her going with Charlie was the final straw,” said the source.

Poor Lauren, we hope she’s okay!

Of course, Charlie is not the only X Factor star that Lauren has been linked to in recent times.

Indeed, One Direction star Niall Horan previously named Lauren as his favourite act on this year’s show and reportedly arranged to meet up with her.

If these rumours are indeed true, we doubt Lauren will be heartbroken for too long.
