X Factor star Ella Henderson shining under the media spotlight
THE media spotlight is shining intensely on 16-year-old Ella at the moment.
From what she's wearing to boys and her latest hairstyle, everyone is keen to know what she's up to.
Celebrity website tellymix.co.uk this week posted that Ella has denied there's any romance going on between her and GMD3's Dan.
Dan – bandmate of local lad Micky Parsons – has admitted fancying her.
The website quoted Ella as saying: "Me and Dan actually went to the same college. We were in different years, so we sort of know each other. So it's just nice so we can relate to stuff – it's a friendship."
And asked whether there was any other budding romances going backstage, Jade Ellis replied: "We're all too busy concentrating on the show and having pillow fights and jumping on each others' beds.
"We are all paired in different rooms. We all go from one room to the other. So we're all sitting in one person's room then we'll run to someone else's."
Lucy added: "We're room hopping. Not like that...."
The website went on to tell how Little Mix has given Ella advice.
She said: "They gave me advice on how to be yourself and stay true to who you are."
And the Little Mix girls have been showing their support for Ella on Twitter.
The band's Jade tweeted during the weekend's latest show: "Watchin x factor ... some amazing talent ... still loving James and Ella! They give me chills :') xxjadexx"
Support on Twitter remains constantly strong for the teenager.
