X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson laughs off Union J George Shelley dating rumours

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

Ella Henderson has laughed off claims that she's dating District3's Dan or Union J's George Shelley!

As the only single girl in a competition full of young guys, it's perhaps no surprise that Ella has been romantically linked already.

But she insisted today: “Me and George are close best friends. We just act like 12-year-olds around each other.

"Last Friday there were comments about Dan from District Three and I, then George and then yesterday me and Lucy Spraggan so I am waiting for me and Rylan to become an item.”

Speaking to the Daily Mirror today, Ella also revealed how Tulisa had been a very "hands-on" mentor to her.

She told the newspaper: “She is a completely hands-on judge. If you want to send a text or call her whenever you like, she is always there.

"We see her most days now and she is really genuine. She will give us advice but she is not overpowering.”

And quizzed on hope she copes performing to more than 10 million viewers every night, Ella added: "I try to get into a zone and sing as if it is just the audience. You do have to remember the cameras to connect to people at home on the sofa but I don’t think about it too much otherwise it can be too nerve-wracking.”
