X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson loves Rylan Clark!

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

Ella Henderson has become the latest X Factor star to jump to the defence of Rylan Clark.

Poor Rylan has received quite a bit of stick from viewers of the show angry that the judges put him through to judges' houses over some of the other signers on Sunday night.

Writing on Twitter today, Rylan ranted: “I’ve EARNED my place at judges houses just like every other person in this comp, not everyone is going to like me, I know that, but don’t judge me for doing something I’ve always wanted to do.”

He added: “For those who are supportive thank you so much, it means the world. For those that ain’t.. Go and have a w**k.”

Backing Rylan, Ella said of his bootcamp performance this week: "I loved Rylan. That whole diva hoedown was hilarious. He was so much fun to be around at bootcamp.

"He’s a great guy. He hasn’t tried to spritz me with fake tan yet. That boy does love his beauty treatments."

Speaking to the official ITV1 X Factor website, Ella also revealed she was a fan of Lucy Spraggan.

She said: "Lucy Spraggan’s Tea and Toast was another highlight for me. I was privileged enough to have her perform it for me personally in our hotel room during bootcamp. I burst into tears afterwards. It’s so beautifully written and very sad."

Ella also explained how Lucy had been inspired to write the song, revealing: "When Lucy was busking she saw an old, loved-up couple walk by and the woman literally dropped dead in front of her.

"Lucy was naturally very traumatised by what she saw and went home to write a song in their honour based on how she imagined their relationship to be."
