The X Factor: George Shelley and Ella Henderson Go Public

Union J heartthrob George Shelley and X Factor golden girl Ella Henderson have gone public with their relationship.

Rumours have been doing the rounds for weeks that The X Factor stars were more than friends but now they have finally been snapped holding hands (gosh) and an X Factor insider says the relationship is getting serious.

Ella, who is favourite to win the itv1 reality show, had previously denied the pair were dating.

A source told The Sun: “Ella and George are the sweetest couple. It’s so lovely to see them together now they’re not denying it.

“They are thrilled they’ve both got far enough to get on the tour. It means they can spend more time together next year.”

At least Union J fans can still take comfort in the fact that three of the boys are still on the market!
