George Shelley: I'll flirt with Ferne McCann forever
George Shelley will flirt with Ferne McCann "forever" even when she's not single
George Shelley will keep flirting with Ferne McCann even though she's rumoured to have a new boyfriend.
The Union J singer was seen getting up close and personal with the former 'The Only Way is Essex' star when they competed on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' last year and, although she's thought to be in a relationship, he's adamant their close bond won't change at all.
Speaking at the National Television Awards last night (20.01.16), he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "He's a very lucky guy to have Ferne. We were flirting together but we were never together. Don't think just because she has a boyfriend I'm not going to flirt with her."
The 22-year-old hunk may enjoy flirting with the reality TV star, 25, but he doesn't think they will ever progress into a couple because they see each other as "best mates."
He added: "We're so close, we're not in a relationship, we're not wanting a relationship, we're just mates."
But their friendship looks set to seep into business partners in coming months as the pair have hinted they have a few future collaborative projects coming up.
Ferne said: "Hopefully we can do more radio together. I'm up for it."
Meanwhile, George and Ferne were clearly on a high last night after 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' picked up the trophy for Best Entertainment Show at the glamorous event.
