George Shelley 'not man enough' for Ferne McCann

George Shelley 'not man enough' for Ferne McCann

George Shelley "isn't man enough" for Ferne McCann, according to her 'TOWIE' co-star Danielle Armstrong.

The Union J singer and the reality TV star struck up a flirty friendship in the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' jungle and even shared a "cheeky snog" after the show but Danielle doesn't think George, 22, is the right guy for Ferne, 25.

She told The Sun: "I don't think George is the one for her. I don't think he's man enough for her - he's not her usual type."

And Danielle tipped Spencer Matthews - who was axed from 'I'm A Celeb' after three days when producers discovered he'd been taking steroids - as the right man for Ferne.

She said: "I think if Spencer Matthews had stayed in something would have happened between them."

However, Spencer could have some competition as Danielle believes Ferne's ex Russell Brand - who she previously dated - is the perfect guy for her.

Ferne dated the funnyman, 40, with whom she had a fling with in 2009, for three months in the spring of this year after bumping into him backstage at the 'Jonathan Ross Show.'

She explained: "I dated him for three months earlier this year between March and June. We first met a few years ago but we didn't stay in touch, then earlier this year I literally bumped into him backstage at 'The Jonathan Ross Show.' "

However, the loud-mouthed beauty eventually decided to let the romance "fizzle out" because she was put off by Russell's persistent behaviour and extravagant gestures.

She said: "I remember him texting me on Shrove Tuesday saying he would send a horse and carriage to get me and bring me back to his house for pancakes. He was certainly very persistent!"
