X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson making her rivals jealous!

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor favouirite Ella Hennderson seems to be creating a few jealous faces amongst her rivals!

The 16-year-old has been the favourite to win since her first audition aired way back in August, and little looks to be in the way of stopping her.

Despite a shaky weekend last Saturday, the teen remains the odds on tip to scoop the record contract prize on offer.

And it's fair to say that her fellow finalists know she's the one to beat, even if they don't all want to admit it!

Speaking at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year Awards 2012 this week however, Union J were pretty open when they admitted that Ella was leading the pack.

The boys - who were in the bottom two at the weekend - told the Metro newspaper on the red carpet that Ella was "unreal", both on the live shows and in rehearsals.

Union J's George Shelley, rumorured to be dating Ella, gushed: "You guys see her on TV but we see her rehearsing all the time and she is just unreal."

In an interview with the Daily Star Sunday recently, Ella confessed that the favourite tag was adding pressure.

She told the tabloid: “I’ve heard I’m the favourite, which I feel is added ­pressure.

“I had a chat about it with Tulisa but she told me not to ­concentrate on that.

“She said it’s an ­amazing thing but not to let it affect me in any way. She told me to keep my head down, focus on my performance, stay grounded and do my best.”

Despite being on course to make it all the way to the final, Ella insisted she wasn’t going to get too cocky.

“Things can change quickly so I can’t think I’m safe just because I’m the ­favourite right now,” she said.

And Ella revealed: “Tulisa said my biggest worry is that people can think I’m safe and not vote.

“Without the votes you don’t stay in the ­competition, which is the main worry.”

The latest results show follows on Sunday evening, which will feature performances from Rita Ora and No Doubt, as well as one more act being given the boot.
