X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson finding celebrity lifestyle "weird"

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Ella Henderson has admitted she's finding the show's celebrity lifestyle weird.

The 16-year-old has been getting praise from several stars, including Tinie Tempah after her performance of his track Written In The Stars at the weekend.

Writing on Twitter yesterday, Tinie said: “Just watched @Ella__Henderson perform ‘Written in the Stars’ on X Factor! WOW! The most beautiful rendition.. U deserve to go all the way! X”

It’s not the first celeb support Ella has received, the teenager has also been getting comments from the likes of Cher and Adele after her performances on the show.

But the past seven weeks have taken Ella on a rollercoaster ride.

"Its really weird, just weeks ago I was wearing a school uniform," he said. "Now I'm in dresses walking down red carpets.

"I still don't class myself as a celebrity. Even when Adele tweeted me, it didn't feel real! It's in sane"

Ella also revealed she was planning to stick to her winning formula of simple performances that focus on her vocals.

"At the end of the day, I want to have my own input and keep it quite simple," she said.

Ella added: "Tulisa is amazing and make sure I'm happy with everything they give us."


In bad news for Ella however she's no longer tipped to win the show.

After spending the first five show weeks as favourite, Ella has now been knocked off the X Factor top spot by Jahmene Douglas.

Leading odds comparison site Oddschecker.com can reveal Jahmene is the current bookmaker’s first runner at a best priced 13/8, with 16 year old Ella at 7/4 having been as short as 8/13 just two weeks ago.

The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a guilty pleasures theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from Alicia Keys and Olly Murs, as well as one more act being given the boot.
