It’s been a right old flirt-a-thon between Ferne McCann and George Shelley lately.

Ever since their stint together in the I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! jungle they’ve been teasing fans by snuggling up together in their Instagram snaps and talking lovingly of each other.

But they still haven’t confirmed they are an actual item.

However, it seems The Only Way Is Essex star Ferne is keen on the idea of coupling up with Union J singer George as she’s asked fans to help think of a single name to unite them.

Posting a picture of themselves posing together in a car online, Ferne wrote: “Londonnnn tings #gerne or #feorge? Taxi #selfie.”

They’re not exactly doing much to make us think they’re both still single and they’re certainly spending a lot of time together.

Former X Factor contestant George confirmed the pair has shared their first kiss but insisted they were not in an official relationship at the time.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: “I do fancy Ferne and there is sexual chemistry.

“We kissed properly for the first time on Thursday night at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.

“We had a few drinks, got a bit drunk and had a cheeky snog. There is potential romance but we want to take it slow. It is weird not being with her 24/7. We both have separation anxiety and have been a bit soppy.

“We’ve been texting, messaging and FaceTime each other all the time. I honestly love her to bits, I really do.”
