Ferne McCann 'proud' of George Shelley

Ferne McCann is "very proud" of George Shelley for coming out.

The 25-year-old star has gushed over her rumoured boyfriend - who she met on reality TV show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' last year - after he opened up about his sexuality in a YouTube video he shared earlier today (03.02.16).

Ferne tweeted: "Feeling very proud of my lil jungle fwend today 'happiness is letting go of what you think life is supposed to look like & celebrating it for everything that it is' I love you bubs (sic)"

The reality TV star wasn't the only one who sent some wise words to George following his admission.

The 22-year-old hunk's Union J bandmates, JJ Hamblett, 27, Jaymi Hensley, 25, and Josh Cuthbert, 23, were also full of pride.

Jaymi - who came out as gay in November 2012 - wrote on Twitter: "Obviously you support for George is very close to my heart! I couldn't be prouder of how he has shown such strength over this recently....

"And you have never judged me because of who I choose to love so please show him the same love you showed me !...... Very proud

"What can I say must be something they put it our waters !!! (sic)"

JJ tweeted: "Proud of you @higeorgeshelley (sic)"

Josh hasn't tweeted at the time of writing.
