Worried Union J fans on Twitter immediately started speculating about what could have happened to the X Factor star.

Some claimed he had been burnt, others suggested he may have got himself a scar on his face.

One worried tweeter posted: "Even if George does get a scar, he will still be George Shelley!! xx <3"

And one joked that at least with a scar he would look different to lookalike Harry Styles from One Direction.

They posted: "if George Shelley has a scar at least we can tell the difference between him and Harry Styles".

Bandmate JJ dished out some sympathy for George, posted: "Get some rest georgey porgey love you bro. Get well soon JJx xxx"
