X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson: 'My family keep me grounded'

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor singing sensation Ella Henderson has thanked her family for keeping her feet on the floor.

At only 16, it's fair to say Ella has experienced a hell of a lot over the past seven weeks, `with a potential duet with Adele on the cards if she makes the final.

But Ella revealed: "My family have kept me grounded. Tulisa has also been guiding me. She’s more than just a mentor, she’s also a friend. We always have such a giggle when we’re together."

While Ella has wowed the judges with some serious vocal performances, the teenager confessed she has been loving watching Rylan Clark on the show too.

She said: "The Best of British theme made me feel really proud and patriotic. Rylan’s Spice Girls medley was wicked. He bought boy power to the studio for the night!"

Speaking to the official ITV1 X Factor website today, Ella also put together her own male version of the spice girls!

She explained: "George would be Baby Spice because he’s so cute. JJ would be Sporty Spice because he’s so energetic. Rylan would be Posh Spice as he’s crazy about fashion and pouts all the time. Jaymi would be Scary Spice because he’s wild and James Arthur would have to be Ginger Spice because of his strawberry blonde hair!"


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.
