George Shelley is a singer, actor, presenter and radio DJ.
George first came to the attention of the British public during the ninth series of the hit series The X Factor where he came 4th as part of the pop group Union J. Following the show, the band achieved three top ten singles, released two studio albums and headlined their own 18 date UK Tour.
Whilst still in the band, George was asked to be a contestant on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! George was a massive hit with both the public and his fellow contestants alike and ended up making it all the way to the finals, coming a close second.
On leaving the jungle, George was asked to co-present “London’s No.1 Breakfast Show” on Capital Radio for a one off special on Boxing Day. George proved so popular that he was asked to join the team as a regular host, alongside Dave Berry and Lilah Parsons, and can now be heard every weekday morning from 06.00-10.00.
In early 2016, George decided to focus on his burgeoning broadcasting and acting career. In addition to his slot on Capital, George recently hosted the Brit’s Red Carpet Live and the E! Golden Globes coverage, and has guest starred in the forthcoming series of Murder in Succesville for BBC3 and Benidorm for ITV.
