X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson denies she's dating George Shelley!

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Ella Henderson has denied rumours she's dating Union J's George Shelly... and District3's Dan Ferrai-Lane!

The teenager has been linked to both of the boy band members since the live shows kicked off, but she insisted it was all just rumours.

Discussing talk of her District3’s Dan Ferrari-Lane, Ella told new! magazine: "We know each other, as we went to the same college, so it’s been nice to see a familiar face. But right now, everyone is so busy focusing on their music.

"Romance here isn’t an option for me, whether I have admirers or not."

And Ella also dismissed recent tabloid claims that she is dating Union J's George Shelly, telling the publication: "I’m always hanging out with the boys because I’m used to being around lads. It’s like being back at home, as I have two brothers.

"People are always thinking there’s flirting going on though, whatever I do!"

However Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack seemed to suggest there was definitely a spark between the pair.

She said on This Morning yesterday: “Ella is supposedly getting close to George Shelley.”

“I have heard on the grapevine, backstage that they are getting quite close.”

Caroline added: “I’m not sure if it’s a very close friendship or if there’s a bit of romance there but I think it would be so cute if they got together.”
