X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson opens up about George Shelley romance

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Ella Henderson has spoken about her 'romance' with fellow finalist George Shelley.

Ella and the Union J singer were spotted hand in hand last week on their first public date.

An onlooker blabbed as the couple were photographed on a romantic stroll: “They looked really sweet. It was clear they just wanted to be by themselves for a bit.”

A source commented: “Ella and George are the sweetest couple. It’s so lovely to see them together now they’re not denying it. They are thrilled they’ve both got far enough to get on the tour. It means they can spend more time together next year.”
Speaking to Fabulous magazine at the weekend, Ella gushed about the Harry Styles lookalike.

"We've got a lot in common, we're in synch with one another," she told the magazine. "You don't come into this competition or this kind of show to make a friend for life and stuff but with certain people I think I've found that and its really nice."

Ella wowed the judges on Saturday night with her cover of Tinie Tempah's Written In The Stars.

Louis Walsh told her: "You're an old soul trapped in a young person's body. You're the best girl we've had since Leona Lewis. I think you are fantastic."

And Ella admitted: "Everyone says that I am an old spirit trapped in a young girls body."


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a guilty pleasures theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from Alicia Keys and Olly Murs, as well as one more act being given the boot.
