Most Popular

UPDATE: All four members have now released a joint statement, which reads: 

In 2012 we started something that has been the centre of our lives ever since, a band and project that is now family to us - Union J. Through two incredible albums, successful tours and a lot of fun along the way, the four of us have all enjoyed this incredible journey. But with time, comes change and a difference in aspirations. So, as we prepare to go back into the studio to work on new material, George will not be continuing on this journey with us. George will now be following his own path and career no longer as part of Union J. This is a mutual decision between the four of us, and we will always remain close. In time we will announce our new plans for 2016 and likewise we will be following George's career and wish him all the best in his endeavours. Jaymi, JJ, Josh & George

George Shelley off of Union J and I'm A Celebrity fame has apparently been kicked out of the band due to "lack of commitment." Err what now?

And in an even more shocking plot twist that we don't really want to believe at this point, the other three boys have apparently already started looking out for a fourth replacement member in the band.

The Mirror reports that Josh said: "I wrote a really strong email. We basically gave him an ultimatum. It was, 'You're either in the band or you're not'.

"George was in a position where he did the jungle, he came off it and his head space was different to ours."

He added to The Sun: "Using a sporting analogy, he wanted to turn up to the big matches but not turn up to training."

Whaaaaaat?

And if that isn't enough, George Shelley's rep then spoke to the Mirror, claiming the other Union J lads are just jealous of George's career. OH GAHD:

"He is now a regular part of the Capital FM Breakfast Show, hosted the Brits Red Carpet Live and recently completed shooting on BBC3's Murder in Successville. He is an utterly charming and hard working individual - not a diva in the slightest."

"The fact of the matter is that the other members of Union J are simply jealous he has achieved the start of an exciting new career and they have not. George had agreed to be totally magnanimous towards them, but unfortunately this has not been reciprocated."

Oh bloooooody hell. What do you make of all this then? Lets discuss @sugarscape. Taaaa.
