For weeks it looked like a sweet teen romance was blossoming behind the scenes of The X Factor between Ella Henderson and Union J's George Shelley.

But last week 16-year-old Ella surprised everyone by admitting it's actually George's bandmate
Josh Cuthbert, 20, who she's developed feelings for.

Ella confessed: ‘As soon as we're both out of it [The X Factor], it's going to go boom.

'I'd love to see him. I do want to spend time with him.'

However, despite the fact Union J left The X Factor last week, Ella will be heartbroken to learn that the feeling isn't mutual.

When Now asked him whether he'd like to date her too, Josh told us: ‘That'd be odd. I'm just like her big brother.

'I heard a rumour about what she was meant to have said, but I haven't spoken to her about it.

'I'm being honest.'
