Union J's George Shelley has denied reports that he is dating Little Mix's Jesy Nelson after the pair were spotted getting cosy at this weekend's Virgin Media's V Festival.

George and Jesy first fuelled romance rumours when they were seen giggling and cuddling in the exclusive Virgin Media Louder Lounge on Saturday night (17 August).

Jesy, 22, headed to the festival with her Little Mix band mates and George showed up at the Essex leg at Hylands Park with his Union J band mates. While together, George was also seen putting his hands around Jesy's waist.

But yesterday, 20-year-old George addressed rumours of a budding new romance when he was questioned by fans in a live video chat.

George, who has previously admitted to fancying Jesy, told fans: "It is not true I'm dating Jesy Nelson.

"But we did go to V Festival together and it was fun. But you all know I'm a cuddly person. So it's fine."

Jesy is yet to comment, but we're glad George has cleared up any speculation!
