They've become inseparable and text non-stop when they're not together," a source has told the Sun."Everyone thought they were just swapping war stories from their experiences on the show, but it turns out it's blossomed."However, Craig has denied the media reports and said the pair share a professional relationship."It's been said that it was a date - it wasn't a date," the Liverpool singer told the Digital Spy. He's been working on his new album with some amazing people."The ex-biscuit factory worker also said: "They were the kind of people that I would want to work with if I did anything, so we met up and he (Danyl) showed me some of his tracks. He was showing me some of them and hopefully if I leave the show I can work with some of the people that he's teamed up with."But, Craig, who has never hidden his sexuality, sang a different tune when he said that spending time with Danyl made him feel "at ease"."I think Danyl's album next year is going to do really, really well and it's a nice peace of mind to know it's not all about being the winner," Craig told Digital Spy.“Everyone thought they were just swapping war stories from their experiences on the show but it turned out it’s blossomed,” the insider said.However Craig has since said that he is “just good friends” with Danyl, who is openly bisexual – and said that he and Danyl had become friendly after he played him some tracks from his forthcoming album.
The duo later went to the West End to watch "Ghost the Musical" and sped off in Johnson's motor."They're very much the item.
"So it helps a lot being around those types of people."Meanwhile, another X-Factor contestant Scouser Marcus Collins, Craig's rival and friend, has not taken the Craig-Danyl relationship very well.
