article imageUnion J are ‘mummy’s boys’, George is One Direction ‘love child’

Union J, the latest realty-TV-created boy band, have been talking about their public image, musical aspirations and comparison’s to One direction.
Union J was assembled by UK X Factor judge Louis Walsh earlier this year, during the show’s so-called “boot camp”, and is managed by Blair Dreelan. The band is made up of Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblet and Jaymi Hensley – who, originally, formed the band Triple J – and solo singer George Shelley.
Initially, Triple J failed to make it through to TV show itself, but Walsh then created the new band, Union J.
In an interview with Now, Hensley said, “[We] entered as Triple J – but didn’t make it through [then] Louis told us we had George, a solo artist, to join us.”
Or, as Independent Voices puts it, “George was […] foisted on them by the ruthless money-making algorithms of the record industry.”
According to Unreality TV, the boys have “insisted that there will be no mad partying, no excessive drinking and no illegal drug-taking” by them over the coming weeks.
Explaining to Now, Hensley continued, “We are such mummy’s boys. If we had a big party with loads of models, our mums would be there, putting clothes on [them].”
Meanwhile, Shelley addressed comments that he looked like Harry Styles from One Direction, adding that one fan “wrote this story about me [saying] I’m the child of Harry and Liam from One Direction”!
The UK X Factor live shows continue this Saturday, 6 October, on ITV 1.
