The 2010 X-Factor runner-up Cher Lloyd has stirred rumours she is set to wed her hairdresser beau as her diamond ring appeared to switch fingers on her hand.

Although the 18-year-old chart topper has a heart tattooed on her marriage ring finger, her diamond ring has floated from one digit to the other in recent months.

However, as friends of the singer told The Sun that Lloyd and boyfriend Craig Monk are engaged, pictures dating back to November 2011 showed the Swagger Jagger artist wearing the diamond ring in that all-important nuptial position.

A source close to the star told the news provider: “She’s head over heels and has been sporting an engagement ring since last month.”

Lloyd conceded last year that the pair had been together for ages and it seems that time span is due to increase as they prepare to make their way down the aisle.

The performer recently took to Twitter to promote the release of her new video, Want U Back, as she called for listeners to offer their thoughts on the single.
