Last year's X Factor love story involving Tamera Foster and Sam Callaghan is over.

Tamera (17) is poised for stardom as Simon Cowell's Syco label gears up to launch her as a solo artist.

And the stunning star reportedly dumped Sam (20) in order to focus her energies entirely on her burgeoning career.

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."

Although Tamera only came fifth on the show last year, which was eventually won by Sam Bailey, Simon offered her a record deal.

Sam (20), meanwhile, continued to pursue his own music career, without Cowell's support.

Last year the couple faced difficulties in their relationship when it was reported that Sam sent sexy messages to a glamour model.  However, at the time Tamera chose to stand by her man.
