X Factor 2012 results: Ella Henderson in bottom two?!

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor favourite Ella Henderson is barely avoiding the bottom two, leaked voting results have claimed.

While Chris Maloney continues to lead the polls, Ella has been just 'a few percent' away from being sent home, the Daily Star reports today.

Last night saw Ella performed a unique take on Written In The Stars by Eric Turner, once again getting glowing comments from the judges.

However an X Factor source revealed: “It may be that Ella’s fans think she is walking it and so they don’t need to vote for her. If that’s the case they couldn’t be more mistaken.

“After a fairly strong start when she was in the top three for a few weeks, support has fallen away."

The supposed insider explained: “For the last couple of weeks she has been languishing just a couple of percent above the bottom two.

“She would only have to drop a few thousand votes to find herself at risk.

“It’s time her fans came out and backed her, or they risk losing her for the final.”

Ella herself meanwhile admitted she's trying to ignore the favourite tag.

The 16-year-old told the newspaper: "I’ve spoken to Tulisa about being the favourite to win and she said I need to not let it affect me, so I am trying to just carry on and do my own thing.

“I’m trying not to take it on board.”
