Union J’s George Shelley holds hands with a girl who isn’t Ella Henderson (or us)

We're sure this hand holding is perfectly innocent, but we're still slightly concerned that George Shelley is getting very close to a girl who is neither Ella Henderson nor us.

So when we saw George Shelley holding hands with a mystery blonde girl, we got a bit concerned.

The pair were all smiles as they left a London nightclub at 3 am. We reckon George may well be struggling a bit at rehearsals today.

George Shelley looked as cute as ever, dressed in skinny jeans paired with a black leather jacket and a white T shirt.

But back to the hand holding.

Whether or not this girl is the someone special remains to be seen.

But we're still cheering 'Gella' on, after she said this week: "At the moment [we are just] very close and good friends, but after the competition, I'd love to see him. I do want to spend time with him. 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."
