X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson and George Shelley to get together after the show?

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor favourite Ella Hendrson and George Shelley could strike up a relationship once the show is over, the Union J singer has claimed.

Speaking about their rumoured romance, George insisted that the pair were "just friends" right now, but teased they could be more once the show has finished.

He told the official ITV1 X Factor website yesterday: "Ella is like my little sister. It’s purely platonic. She’s a great girl.

"I would perhaps consider dating her after the show. Who knows?"

Ella previously insisted that there was simply no time for any romance on the show.

The 16-year-old said: "For everyone that questions the romances, there’s not time to actually do anything like that or get into a serious relationship like that.

“The schedule of this competition is just too jam-packed… but you never know what will happen after the show is finished.”

Meanwhile, asked what he looked for in a lady, George continued: "I love a lady who can make me laugh and I’m a sucker for big brown eyes.

"Demi Lovato is hot. I’d take her camping somewhere warm, like Austalia. We could cook barbeques on the beach and go surfing. That would be romantic!"

But if George doesn't get anywhere with Ella or Demi, he's got plenty of fans who'd love to be on his arm!

He revealed: "A fan told me that they’d booked a room in the hotel so they could be closer to us. Intense!"
