Ferne McCann rules out future with George Shelley

Ferne McCann doesn't want to date George Shelley.

The 'Only Way is Essex' star, 25, developed a flirtatious bond with the Union J singer, 22, when they appeared in 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' earlier this month but, despite being inseparable after they left the jungle, she doesn't think there's a future for them as a couple anymore.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she explained: "Every day I would look at him and I would think, 'I really fancy you. I want to jump in your hammock and make mini Union Js.' When we came out, we were inseparable.

"Since coming back, wanting to be with him has passed. You spend so much time with each other. Obviously you want to be your complete self with your significant other, but we talk about things that are more on a friendship level.

"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."

The blonde beauty, who has already been on a number of dates since she returned from Australia, is adamant she's "100 per cent single" but is on the lookout for The One.

She said: "I'm really ready to meet my Prince Charming ... I celebrate being single and I'm happy being single.

"If a guy was to come into my life, that would be a bonus. I want to live with a guy. I'm ready to move out of mum's and be an adult."
