Article from the Adelaide Confidential (18 May 2005) - Michala is head over heels for her man Dan

McLeod's Daughters star Michala Banas ... insiders say she's an
 item with X-Factor hunk, Daniel MacPherson.

WELL, someone certainly has the X-factor, as far as Michala Banas is concerned.

The McLeod's Daughters star has hooked up with X-Factor host Daniel MacPherson.

Banas attended Sunday night's final of the singing comp and the pair was not exactly hiding their feelings, kissing and cuddling at the after-party. So, it seems it wasn't just an EH Holden station wagon Daniel had his eye on when in town last week - and neither was it a coincidence that Michala showed up at the Channel 10 post-Logies party. Adelaide X-Factor contender Jacob Butler confirmed "Dan Mac" and the pint-sized actress were smooching at the wrap party. "Yeah, of course. They're officially an item," Jacob says. "They've been seeing each other for a while. She's lovely, a really nice girl." We can vouch for that as well.

Daniel doesn't seem to mind high-profile relationships - his previous lady friends have included former Superjesus frontwoman Sarah McLeod and The Bill co-star Beth Cordingly. Michala declined to comment on the relationship.
