XFactor 2012 results: Ella Henderson: 'I never expected to get this far'

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

Ella Henderson has claimed she's not shocked by her exit from The X Factor 2012, even though everyone else is!

Ella became the latest singer to leave the competition in this evening's shocking XFactor 2012 results after she fell into the bottom two with James Arthur.

The judges couldn't split the pair and sent the decision to deadlock, with Ella leaving having received the fewest public votes.

Speaking to host Dermot O'Leary, Ella said: "This year the talent has been incredible, everybody deserves to be in the final. I just want to say thank you so much. I wouldn't be where I am right now without this show."

Ella's mentor Tulisa said: "This situation is ridiculous.

"I don't know what went wrong, people thought she was safe. There was nothing wrong with her performances. This week was one of the best she's ever done."

Ella added: "I've loved every minute of it and it's given me so much confidence, not only as a performer but as a person and I'm going to take that with me."

Speaking later on the Xtra Factor, Ella said: "It's horrible being in that bottom two. It's just horrible, absolutely awful. I never expected to get this far, I never expected to get through my live audition.

"I wasn't shocked about myself, I was shocked James was in the bottom two."

The 16-year-old added: "Tulisa, just thank you so much, my little cupcake!"


The X Factor 2012 continues next Saturday and Sunday on ITV1 and ITV1HD.
