Ella Henderson has said she's happy Christopher Maloney lost out on the X Factor 2012 final.

James Arthur won The X Factor 2012 final at the weekend, beating Jahmene Douglas while Chris finished in third spot.

Ella said today: "The last two in the final, Jaheme and James, were the right two. They are both winners."

The 16-year-old added: "Seeing everyone on Sunday night was amazing. It was really fun to sing together and it was like reuniting a family. I love Rylan, he is so fun to be around."

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Ella said she was still very much in contact with mentor Tulisa since leaving the show.

She explained: "We are still in contact and we text which is nice. I loved having her as a mentor, I saw the hidden Tulisa and her warm side.

"As much as we were chalk and cheese, we had lots in common."

Meanwhile, Ella revealed her ultimate goal was to design her own fashion line.

Despite having labels reportedly fighting over her for her voice, the teenager confessed she'd love to design her own clothes for Very.

"I love Very, their catwalk on ice is very exciting and I love what Fearne and Holly have done for the brand," she said. "I would love to do my own fashion line. It would be very vintage-inspired and represent my style which is very fifties with a modern twist. It would be classy and timeless."
