XFactor 2012: Ella Henderson goes on a date with Union J's George Shelley

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's George Shelley and Ella Henderson aren't doing much to stop the romance rumours.

The pair, who have apparently been getting close at the finalists' five star hotel, took to Twitter this evening to announce they were going on their first date!

Union J's George tweeted a picture of the himself along with Ella, adding: "Just getting ready for our first date! Haha George X"

Show sources insist that the teenager pair are together, and have been told to try to keep it all a secret!

"Ella and George are really keen on one another," an insider says. "They've been spending most of their time in each other's hotel rooms.

"They'd like to make their relationship official as they hate keeping everything top secret."

A supposed pal of the pair told Closer magazine this week: "They are distancing themselves from the others and sneak off during breaks from rehearsals to go to their own quiet corner.

"Ella's said that although she's only been seeing him for a few weeks, they're serious about each other. George says she's his perfect woman."

Shedding her inside view, Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack told heat magazine this week: "I don't know if George and Ella has happening. They're just friends, but I think we want them to get together.

"They would make such a lovely couple! Everyone loves an X Factor romance."
