Tulisa Contostavlos has denied she is dating The Wanted's Max George.
Rumours were fuelled after The X Factor judge, who has also recently been linked to Shameless actor Jody Latham, was seen laughing and joking with the 24-year-old singer at the Pride of Britain Awards.
But she told The X Factor website: "I'm not dating Max from The Wanted - he's just a mate! We were papped on a night out and it was built into this big love affair."
"I'd love to see Adele duet with Ella. I love Ella! Ella is one of the purest souls I've ever met," she said.
"She's an amazing talent, has a great work ethic and is amazingly grounded. She doesn't have a bad bone in her body. I find it a bit of a novelty seeing as I was the only girl in N-Dubz."
She added: "I've been giving her advice about boys and relationships. I've told Ella to wait and make the boys chase after her."
