X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson 'doing brilliantly' after elimination

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed Ella Henderson is doing brilliantly since leaving the show.

Ella was eliminated from the series two weeks ago, in a shock bottom two against James Arthur.

The 16-year-old was once the odds on favourite to win the competition, but lost out when the judges sent the decision to deadlock.

Tulisa said: "Ella’s doing brilliantly. I chatted with her today and she was in good spirits. I was really pleased to hear about her gig with Olly Murs at G-A-Y. She performed there last Saturday night. She looked great!"

Ella herself called up the Xtra Factor at the weekend and confessed that she was missing Tulisa and their girly chats!

But not to fear Ella fans, she and the rest of the finalists will all be back on stage for next month's final.

Meanwhile, Tulisa insisted that her and fellow female judge Nicole Scherzinger weren't involved in any style war.

Speaking to the official ITV1 X Factor website this evening, she said: "No way! I couldn’t care less about these ‘fashion wars.’ Nicole always looks stunning, there’s no rivalry whatsoever between us. I like her."

The X Factor 2012 continues this weekend on ITV1 and ITV1HD with the final four acts singing songs that they hope will get them into the final.

On Sunday's results show, one more act get the axe and there will be performances from Pink and Tulisa.
