He’s a member of one of the hottest boy bands in the world, so naturally Nathan Sykes is a bit girl crazy.

And while The Wanted hunk is currently in a relationship with Ariana Grande, it turns out he used to have a thing for Disney dame Selena Gomez.

Sykes told We Love Pop magazine, "[Max George] follows someone on Twitter, then he is in the tabloids saying he is in a relationship. I started following the Selena Gomez and nothing. Where is my relationship?!"

He added, "To be honest, I always liked Selena, but I really did not want to go that side because Justin would kill me! I would probably receive a call from [mutual manager Scooter Braun] telling me to stay away!"

Nathan even got starstruck when he saw Gomez at a Justin Timberlake concert- "I must have looked like a complete idiot. My friends were like, 'Just say hi,' but I could not even talk to her! But that's how I am. I'm very, very nervous around girls that I really like. I need to improve my game."
