X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson can't wait to meet Adele

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor favorite Ella Henderson has said she can't wait to meet her idol Adele.

Earlier in the series we saw Ella wow the judges with Loving You by Minnie Ripperton.

But Louis Walsh told the teenager: “It’s so hard to think you’re only sixteen and you can sing that big song… the only thing is, I think you’re mentor has been watching too many Adele videos! I don’t like that you’ve been styled like Adele!”

However Adele seemed to take the comparison to Ella as a compliment.

The Rolling In The Deep hitmaker tweeted during that evening’s live show: “Ella Henderson on X Factor is absolutely incredible! I LOVE her!! Good luck xx”

Speaking at the Pride of Britain awards last week, Ella told PopPrice that she "couldn't stop grinning" after getting tweeted by the singer.

The teenager said: "She's like a golden globe artist and I'm a huge fan of hers..and if I do meet her, I'll be incredibly starstruck. But I'm so happy for her right now."

The favourite to win, Ella insisted she was just planning to take every week as it comes now.

She added: "I'm not even looking as far as the final..I'm living for the present and I think that's the best way to look at it."
