Ferne McCann and George Shelley to make music together

Ferne McCann and George Shelley are planning to make and release music together next year.

The 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' finalists, who struck up a romantic bond during the three-week stint on the show earlier this month, are heading for the studio in 2016.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, the Union J singer, 22, said: "Ferne has such a good voice, I want her to write a song with me. She's really got something, and it's going to be really cool to pull it out of her."

The hunk was blown away by the 'Only Way is Essex' star's vocals when she serenaded him in the Australian jungle.

He added: "She [Ferne] reminds me of Amy Winehouse - she has a similar voice, and she has similar characteristics."

And George isn't the only one who has compared Ferne to the 'Rehab' hitmaker - who passed away in 2011 from alcohol poisoning aged just 27 - as her former co-star Gemma Collins can also see the resemblance.

Ferne, 25, explained: "Gemma Collins says I'm like Amy Winehouse, too. Maybe it's the nose."

Meanwhile, despite having plans to launch a music career together, George and Ferne - who came second and third respectively on the ITV programme - are adamant their relationship is purely platonic after their flirty antics in the jungle and "cheeky snog" afterwards set tongues wagging.

Ferne said recently: "We get on amazingly, there is chemistry there. When I'm with him I want to cuddle him and be close to him. But when I'm away from him, I can easily switch off from that. We're lifelong friends."
