"They haven't really had time to see much of each other since Lauren has been in the X Factor house, so they are going to see how things are once she has finished the show and been on the X Factor tour."

A source told The Sun: "Tamera had strong feelings for Sam, but she is also very ambitious.

"It wasn't her intention to hurt him, but she knew it was time to move on. Sam is moving on with his career and is still very ambitious so it just wasn't going to work."
