The singer has been with her partner for four years and they seem inseparable.

X factor finalist Scarlett Lee sparked marriage rumours among fans after she mistakenly posted on her Instagram story.

The singer has been with her fiancé, Nathan Shaw for a whopping four years so the post certainly raised some eyebrows.

Answering a fan, Scarlett, 21, said that she had married in the bright pink dress she was spotted wearing in pictures.

The question "did u get married in that pink dress" was asked via the Instagram 'ask me anything' feature, and the singer replied with a picture of her in the bubblegum-pink dress and "I did" as the caption, as well as tagging the dressmaker, Agata Nicole.

However, it turns out that the Barbie-style dress was worn by Scarlett to her nephew's wedding.

Nathan, Scarlett's partner of many years proposed to the ITV star back in January of this year, and did so in a graveyard, next to her late grandparents as he knew how much she would want them to be there.

With four months to go 'til the wedding, fans were confused to see Scarlett's Instagram post which made it seem like she was already wed.

However, as soon as she understood the confusion, she hopped back on her social media sites to set the record straight and retract her statement.

She snapped a selfie and captioned it: "Who's the dumb person who said I did instead of I did get it made ...MEEE."

She'll have a whopping 14 bridesmaids, nine of them being her young cousins, and she'll have a gigantic 350 daytime guests with an additional 50 in the evening.

The star has signed a magazine deal so will have a tunnel around the venue to prevent paparazzi from taking pictures of her and the family as they make their way inside.
