The 'Beautiful Life' stars say all they did was hang out together with the 'Come & Get It' singer.

Union J have defended bandmate George Shelley over press claims this week that he and Selena Gomez have gotten together and insist the pair are "just friends".

The 'Carry You' four-piece supported US superstar Selena on her 'Stars Dance' tour out in Portugal last week, leading to widespread reports of a romance between curly-haired George and Justin Bieber's ex-girlfriend Selena.

"They're just friends," JJ Hamblett confirmed to The Metro this week. 'It's not our place to discuss but they are friends and, obviously, George will say what he wants to say about the situation, before confirming that all the band did with US star Selena was hang out after her show in Lisbon.

"She didn't get off stage until quite late, so we just went and she invited us all back to her hotel and we had a drink," Josh Cuthbert revealed.

Despite all the rumours about George's alleged antics with the 'Come & Get It' singer, the boys insist their bandmate is not the lothario people think he is.

"He's such a buggy person, he loves hugs," Josh added.

Union J release new single 'Beautiful Life' on 21st October with their self-titled debut album following a week later on 28th October.
