Union J reportedly informed Shelley via e-mail that he was out of the band, and they’ll be replacing him in the next few weeks. British boyband Union J have kicked George Shelley out of the group via e-mail, with the remaining three members citing his lack of commitment since appearing on ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’ as the reason. Shelley, however, has retaliated against his former colleagues, saying that they’ve ejected him because of jealousy at his raised public profile after finishing as runner-up in the ITV reality show in December last year. A spokesperson for the 22 year old said they were ‘jealous he has achieved the start of an exciting new career and they have not.’ Speaking to The Sun on Thursday night (March 3rd), the now-three-piece band, consisting of Jaymi Hemsley, JJ Hamblett and Josh Cuthbert, said that Shelley was ‘in a position where he did the jungle, he came off it and his head space was different to ours.’
