XFactor 2012: Ella Henderson doesn't like Christopher Maloney!

Ella Henderson (X Factor 2012)

Ella Henderson has confessed she's not a fan of Christopher Maloney.

The teenager, who will be back on the show this weekend, said she was backing either Jahmene Douglas or James Arthur to beat the Liverpudlian singer in the final.

Ella said: "I like Jahmene and James Arthur. James has got a really strong following, so I think he might win."

Union J feel the same way, after they were axed in the semi-final at the weekend.

"When we first started this we thought it would be Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur," the boys said. “Ella is more talented than Christopher, she was robbed massively. But he needs the show, he won’t have as much opportunity outside the show”

Meanwhile Ella downplayed claims that she was involved in a "bidding war" to be signed.

Speaking to the Grimsby Telegraph, Ella said this week: "At the moment everything is up in the air. I have signed a contract that means I have to wait until the show is finished and then there is the X Factor tour, so who knows what will happen.

"At the moment, though, everything is looking really bright and very exciting for the next year."
