Union J part ways with George Shelley

Clearly being in a boyband isn’t as easy as first meets the eye as The Sun have revealed directly from the Union J boys that they’ve parted ways with George Shelley.

Fans had become suspicious in the past few days as photos begun circulating of the guys out partying for Jaymi’s birthday without George in sight eekk. This tweet did nothing to cool rumours, further fueling rumours that all things weren’t great in the Union J camp.

Speaking exclusively to Dan Wooton, Josh Cuthbert blames the departure on Shelley’s changing manner following on from his I’m A Celebrity Success. Claiming a lack of commitment to the band being the main cause of this decision being made.

“I would much rather have someone who wants to do it and is committed to do it. I’m not going to lose any sleep over him not being in the band.”

However, the now trio have announced it won’t stay this way for long with a new fourth member being lined up and announced in the next few weeks. Exciting? We thought so!

What are your views on this announcement? Expected or completely unexpected? Be sure to tweet us @CelebMix as we’d love to know your opinions. We can also provide tissues on requests for those trying to get their head around this whole situation, we’re still a teenie bit in shock!

Unashamedly in love with pop music and boybands. I'm always looking for new artists to check out, so send them my way and you might be able to be smug knowing you helped me find a new favourite band. You'll probably say I have long hair, most people do.
