'X Factor' contestants confirm relationship

'X Factor' contestants Ella Henderson and Union J's George Shelley have gone public with their relationship.

The singing hopefuls - who previously denied they were dating despite being spotted sharing a kiss at the finalist's London hotel and cuddling at the Pride of Britain Awards last month - are said to have stopped hiding their relationship and are telling people they can't wait to spend most of next year together on the show's live tour.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Ella and George are the sweetest couple. It's so lovely to see them together now they're not denying it.

"They are thrilled they've both got far enough to get on the tour. It means they can spend more time together next year."

Shelley, 19, stepped out hand-in-hand with Henderson for a romantic walk on Thursday in London.

The latest intimate snaps come shortly after 16-year-old Henderson - who is a hot favourite to win the reality competition - claimed she had no time for romance during the competition.

She previously said: "Right now, everyone is so busy focusing on their music. Romance here isn't an option for me, whether I have admirers or not."
