Caroline hopes the teens have sparked up a romance

Caroline Flack would love it if X Factor hopeful Ella Henderson hooked up with fellow contestant George Shelley.

Ella, 16, and Union J singer George, 19, are rumoured to have struck up a romance after kissing during a game of Truth Or Dare with other finalists last week.

‘Now Ella is supposedly getting close to George Shelley – I have heard on the grapevine that they are getting quite close,’ says Caroline, 32.

‘I’m not sure if its just a very close friendship or if there’s a little bit of romance there but I think it’d be really cute if they got together! What a nice couple.’

Despite hoping that Ella and Harry Styles lookalike George have found love with each other, Caroline is secretly rooting for a different act to win.

The Xtra Factor presenter is a big fan of tattooed guitarist James Arthur – who her ex-boyfriend Harry, 18, recently revealed he’s also voting for.

‘I’m not allowed to have favourites but if I did have a favourite James Arthur would be my favourite!’ Caroline tells ITV show This Morning.

‘His voice just gets me every single time.’
