X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson wants to sing original songs

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor singing sensation Ella Henderson has revealed she hopes to sing her own songs.

So far the teenager has been limited to covers on the live shows, despite having initially wowed the judges at her original with her own track.

Speaking on Xtra Factor, Ella said: "I would love to do some of my own songs, there's talks of it."

Last night's latest performance show saw Ella take on You Got The Love as part of this week's club classics theme.

The judges all praised the singing, but Gary slated her "Steps" dance moves, which he said were like something out of a 90s boyband video!

But Ella told Xtra Factor hosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack: "I really enjoyed it, I wanted to feel 16 and young instead of singing in a long dress singing in a ballad. I want to do something different.

"I can connect more with slow songs, but I love singing uptempo songs."

The teenager, who has been widely tipped to win this year's series, also revealed on the ITV2 spin-off show that she was missing home.

She added: "This week has been quite a tough week.

"I've had quite a few down points missing my big sister, I am really close to her."
