XFactor 2013 tour: Ella Henderson loves being the only girl!

Josh, Jaymi and Ella

Ella Henderson is enjoying being the only girl on the X Factor 2013 live tour!

The live concert kicked off last weekend in Manchester and so far the group have visited Brighton and X.

Ella is joined by the rest of the top seven finalists on the bill, who are all guys.

The teenager is touring along with James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas, Union J, District3, Rylan Clark and Christopher Maloney.

But Ella's loving it, saying: "It's funny being the only girl again, but I get on with all the guys! It's like having my brother at home."

Ella revealed this week she's still in touch with her mentor on the show Tulisa, explaining: "When you get so far in the competition, the mentor thing disappears and you become friends.

"She gave me the foundations of a career - make sure you stay grounded and keep people around you can trust.

"Everything happens for a reason. I'm so happy. Just being able to write and being in charge of my life again."

And despite not winning, the tour, a string of private gigs and a record deal with Simon Cowell have set Ella up for a long time to come.

She teased: "I'm doing very well. It was an extremely busy time around Christmas and it hasn't calmed down."
