Max still holds Michelle in high esteem

He might not be dating her anymore but Max George still thinks Michelle Keegan is beautiful.

The singer has opened up about his most recent relationship, which ended last summer, in footage from The Wanted‘s new reality show The Wanted Life.

Max split from Coronation Street actress Michelle, 26, in July 2012 shortly after he was pictured kissing a mystery blonde in a Newcastle club.

And he’s admitted that his and Michelle‘s whirlwind romance – which saw them get engaged in 2011 just a few months after they started dating – moved a bit too fast.

My last relationship, it was with a very beautiful girl called Michelle,’ says Max.

She’s a famous actress in England. We were together, I guess, just under two years.

But everything happened really quickly. I’m 24, and I’m single. So I just want to enjoy it.’

Whilst Michelle has since hooked up with TOWIE star Mark Wright, 26, Max is too busy for a relationship.

Being in The Wanted is the longest relationship I’ve ever had, that includes being engaged,’ the singer says.

I don’t think my lifestyle suits a girlfriend.’

The Wanted Life premieres 24 June at 9pm on E!
