It was reported during the series that Josh and Ella had been dating, despite originally rumours suggesting was Ella and George Shelley who were getting close.
Speaking after her shock exit from the show, Ella did confess she had feelings for Union J singer Josh.
She told Look magazine: “As as soon as we’re both out of The X Factor it’s going to go boom. I’d love to see him. I do want to spend time with him.”
However Josh hasn’t been so keen.
In fact, he said it would be “weird” dating Ella, describing their relationship as close friends.
It looks like it’s the friend zone for Ella!
Josh explained: “That would be weird [dating Ella]. I’m just like her big brother.
“I heard a rumour about what she was meant to have said, but I haven’t spoken to her about it. I’m being honest.”
But there’s some good news for Union J fans, with Josh confirming he’s currently very much single and looking!
He said: “I was dating someone from home but it wasn’t serious and it was never really going to work out while I was doing the show.
“So at the moment I’m unattached and up for anything.”
