However, in a new interview Ella has denied that she and George Shelley from Union J are an item. But we're still not completely convinced.

Ella Henderson told Look magazine: "Let me explain it like this. George is my best friend. Jaymi is like my big brother, JJ is hilarious."

However, when asked what will happen between the pair once The X Factor is over, Ella said: "At the moment it's hard to say. He's still in the competition. As soon as we're both out of it, it's going to go boom."

Only time will tell. I'm so strongly focused on what I want to come out of the competition, but you can't stop how you feel about someone"
