Ella Henderson (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 star Ella Henderson has revealed she has 30 songs ready to perform on the live shows.

Speaking on This Morning earlier today and quizzed about her song writing ability, Ella revealed: "I've got about 30 songs I would be willing to put at the top of the list and perform them to people."

However not to be outdone, Lucy boasted: "I've about 200!"

Meanwhile shy Jade Ellis revealed how her daughter gave her the confidence to perform.

"I think a couple of years ago I wouldn't have had the confidence, I wouldn't have done this, but having a daughter... if you have a kid it gives you the confidence to do anything."

The trio were joined by their mentor Tulisa on the ITV1 show, who said it would "absolutely amazing" to win for a second time.

Tulisa, who made history by mentoring Little Mix to the win with the groups last year, said: "Winning again would be amazing but it can't be done without the talent and people who want to work hard, and these girls definitely do. They have all the ingredients. "

Tulisa also revealed her advice to the girls to try and stay strong.

"You need to be strong, as everyone has an opinion, you need to stand your own ground," she told them.

She added: "They've got me, I want them to be comfortable and dress how they want to dress and look how they want to look.

"I think after getting to know them they're pretty strong, they know what's to come, I think now its not as bad as it will get but they know what's coming, and I'm here for them."
