Young X Factor hopeful George Shelley has been rumoured to have become very close with X Factor rival Ella Henderson. George has admitted that he and Ella have become very good friends and claims that they may begin dating after the show has finished.
Shelley explained, "Ella is like my little sister. It’s purely platonic. She’s a great girl. I would perhaps consider dating her after the show. Who knows?” However, Ella Henderson is not the only person that George has got his eye on, as he admits to having a crush on X Factor USA judge Demi Lovato.
He added, “I love a lady who can make me laugh and I’m a sucker for big brown eyes. Demi Lovato is hot. I’d take her camping somewhere warm, like Austalia. We could cook barbeques on the beach and go surfing. That would be romantic!”
George Shelley initially auditioned for The X Factor as a solo artist but was rejected at the Boot Camp phase of the show. The other three auditioned as Triple J but were also rejected at the Boot Camp phase. However, it was decided to put George with Triple J and create Union J.
