X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson upset by fat jibes from Twitter trolls!

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Ella Henderson has reportedly been left upset by fat jibes from online trolls.

The 16-year-old has been branded 'fat' by some X Factor viewers who clearly have nothing better to do with their time.

Speaking to Look magazine, sources claimed that the teenager had been left "very upset" by the remarks she had been reading.

"On stage, Ella seems very grown-up; I think everyone forgets she is only 16. If she was at school and someone said those things to her, they’d probably be expelled," the insider said.

They added: “Here Ella just has to accept that it’s part of her life now. She’s very upset.”

The publication reports that Union J's George Shelley has been helping Ella with the online bullies, amid rumours that the pair are a little more than friends.

It's been claimed that the two teens have hooked up behind the scenes, but both have insisted they're just good pals.

The source revealed: “Ella’s been confiding in George. She tells him everything and he’s convinced her not to worry about the ‘idiots’ online, adding that 99% of the world are completely in love with her.”
