Union J star George Shelley suggests he's more than friends with 51-year-old Gayle Feldman


With everyone from Simon Cowell to Jodie Marsh flocking to Barbados to avoid the bitter British breezes, it was inevitable they’d be some sort of showbiz holiday romance.

But we didn’t quite expect it to come in the form of 21-year-old Union J star George Shelley with 51-year-old mother-of-two Gayle Feldman.

Er yeah, you read that right!

While 2012’sThe X Factor boy band have faced many comparisons to their show successors One Direction – it appears it isn’t just musically where the similarities start and end, but also when it comes to women of an older age.

If Harry Styles‘ 14-year age gap to cougar Caroline Flack was enough to shock, then it’s not entirely surprising fans are branding the unlikely pair ‘disgusting’ on Twitter due to the 30-year difference.

After flying out to the Bajan city on Boxing Day, the Union J boys have been partying hard with the island’s wide array of stars, including Sinitta and her BFF Gayle.

Pint-sized pop star George was initially spotted splashing around at sea with Gayle, after she presumably caught his attention in her Sinitta-inspired wet suit made of palm leaves.

But as the holiday progressed the pair continued to cosy up in a series of shots littered online, with George writing ‘found my new favourite person’ alongside a selfie.

With Gayle then adding ‘right back at you’ before eventually being snapped sharing a New Year’s snog with the star three days later.

Hmm! We wonder what his mum makes of it all…

George has previously been linked to Neon Jungle singer Asami Zdrenka after celebrating his 21st birthday with the singer, and told WeLovePop he’d ‘never date a fan’ when talking about his love life.

We guess that’s why he’s grown so close to 51-year-old Gayle then. Something tells us we won’t be catching her bopping up and down with at a Union J concert any time soon, unless she’s taking her kids!
