The X Factor singer doesn’t believe he bears a resemblance to the 1D singer

Floppy-haired Union J singer George Shelley is being hailed as the new Harry Styles – and the teenager seems to be just as much of a hit with the ladies.

George, 19, has already been linked to fellow X Factor contestant Ella Henderson and reportedly has a soft spot for Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson.

‘I know the others would say I’m the womaniser of the group, but I wouldn’t describe myself as that.’ says George.

‘We were doing a photo shoot…and I bumped into Harry Styles.

‘I have to say I was gutted as despite people comparing me to him, I look nothing like him!’

The 1D singer, 18, gave George some personal guidance on dealing with his newfound fame.

‘[He said] stay grounded, spend time with our families doing normal things and to get as much rest as possible,’ says George.

‘He warned me about the stress levels.

‘He told me to keep perspective and work hard.’
