Earlier, when we brought you the news that The Wanted’s Max George and Michelle Keegan were no longer engaged – we were completely confused as to whether this meant they were still together as a couple. After all, no longer being engaged is not exactly the best sign that the relationship is going swimmingly.
But it seems Max and Michelle have very different ideas – and the pair have both confirmed separately that they are still together despite no longer being in line to exchange vows and stuff.
Max took to Twitter (of course he did, where else would he go?) to say what he had to. He wrote, “Hey everyone, so just to clear up any rumours, me and Shell are still very much together, just there is no wedding. The call got cut off.... And made it sound much worse. And yes, of course I'd ove to [sic]”
We assume he means he’d still love to get married. But a straight-talking spokesperson for Michelle has explained that side of the story quite clearly.
“Michelle and Max are still very much together as a couple, but they are both traditionalists and realised that there is no point in being engaged until they are in a position to plan a wedding," she explained to Digital Spy.
So there we have it – pop and soap’s sexiest couple have not split up. But they are no longer engaged to be married. Sounds like things could get even more complicated seeing as they're still on opposite sides of the world while The Wanted tour America. We’re just hoping for the best!
