Max is bowled over by Dublin model Shannen
HE'S a well-known ladies man, but it seems The Wanted's Max George is quite taken with aspiring catwalk queen Shannen Reilly McGrath.
The British popstar was in town last weekend for a personal appearance at Hush nightclub.
While being paid to party with revellers in the Irish capital, the Glad You Came singer got chatting to 20-year-old blonde Shannen - and the pair got on so well that they've been texting since.
"He was such a lovely guy and such a gentleman, we were hanging out the whole night," Shannen told the Herald.
"We swapped numbers on the night and have been chatting. He's just very down to earth and really nice."
The Tallaght native, who is competing as a contestant in Miss Ireland 2014, even revealed that 25-year-old Max may turn up as a special guest to support her at the final on July 19.
"He said he's hoping to come over for it, he wants to support if he can, so we'll see what happens," she said.
"We were trying to meet up last Sunday at the K Club, the day after we were all at Hush, but it didn't work out with his schedule in the end unfortunately."
Max, who is from Manchester, soared to fame with boyband The Wanted in 2010.
The five singers, among them Dubliner Siva Kaneswaran, announced their plans to hang up their microphones and go their separate ways in January following a world tour.
In addition to his music career, Max has garnered plenty of attention when it comes to his love life.
He previously dated Coronation Street beauty Michelle Keegan and A-lister Lindsay Lohan.
Max is now looking to become a bona fide actor. He has set his sights on Hollywood and admitted that he's taking elocution lessons to help casting directors understand his Mancunian accent.
