Despite being gorge, you won't catch George with his top off


The mere thought of any of Union J swanning onto stage at the X Factor without a top on has us feeling pretty weak around the ovary department.

But despite being a complete dreamboat, bandmember George Shelley won't be going topless any time soon after bullying in his schooldays has left him feeling less than confident about his body.

From the sound of things, George didn't have the easiest time at school and it's left him with low self-confidence when it comes to getting shirtless.

"I was obese, I'm massively insecure," George told Heat. "I won't even take my top off in the pool.

"It's programmed into my head that I'm fat because I got bullied at school and I can't get it out."

"If I got changed for PE and took my top off, people would laugh," he added.

You won't even catch him or bandmate Jaymi - who also describes himself as insecure about his body - in just their trunks at the beach.

"If we went sunbathing, we'd probably wear wetsuits," George said.

We can't help thinking this is a massive shame as they are pretty hot stuff, but whatever makes them feel happy is good by us.
