George Shelley and Ferne McCann have a 'connection'

George Shelley has admitted he and Ferne McCann have a "connection".

The Union J singer and the 'Only Way Is Essex' star appeared to have fallen head over heels for one another in the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' jungle and while they've refused to comment on whether or not they're dating, George has confessed there is definitely a spark between them.

He said: "It's kind of like being put in a pressure cooker, the whole situation in the jungle, and we obviously get on, we've obviously got a connection and I think we're just looking forward to seeing what happens."

Ferne - who split from long-term boyfriend and former 'TOWIE' co-star Charlie Sims earlier this year - went on to insist it was "inevitable" they were going to get on well in the jungle.

She told ITV's 'This Morning': "We got so close in there and we were the youngest two people in the camp and it was inevitable that we were going to get on. I've skipped the fancy stage. I love him. I think we get on very well as friends.

"It's the complete opposite to a showmance. What me and George have is genuine. We've got a fantastic friendship."

And the brunette beauty claimed that while they've spent 24 hours a day with each other over the past few weeks, they still haven't locked lips.

She added: "No we didn't kissed and no we haven't kissed."
