X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson favourite with TellyMix readers

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

Ella Henderson is the early favourite on The X Factor 2012 with TellyMix readers.

The teenager has topped our first popularity poll of the series with an impressive 27% of the vote of the entire top 25 contestants.

Thousands of you voted for your favouite amongst the X Factor finalists who have made it through to judges' houses, with Lucy Spraggan quite behind Ella.

And proving that the the boys and girls are the categories to beat, James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas follow the girls.

The overs are particularly strong too, with Christopher Maloney completing the top five and Carolynne Poole and
Kye Sones both right behind.

Union J - a new group formed of Triple J and George Shelley - are the highest group in the poll, but are quite far behind Ella.

Jake Quickenden and Melanie Masson are also doing well, while groups GMD3 and MK1 remain in the middle of the pack.

At the other end of the scale and we see what a lack of air time does to a contestant's popularity.

Leanne Robinson, who was only ever briefly seen in her audition and at bootcamp, is bottom of the girls with just 1% of the overall vote.

And Brad Shackleton, who this week hit out at the lack of air time he's been getting just just 18 votes to his name.

Right at the bottom is unfortunately Mitsotu, one of our favourite acts!

Of course, this poll was based on all Top 25 acts, but just twelve of them will make it through to the live shows!

Find out this weekend who that will be, and return on Monday to vote in our new poll.
