Ella Henderson looks so young in 10 year old X Factor clip amid reunion with Dermot

Ella Henderson looks so young in 10 year old X Factor clip amid reunion with Dermot

Ella Henderson reunited with Dermot O’Leary on This Morning - ten years after the pair first met on the X Factor.

The ITV daytime show played Ella’s throwback audition performance of her song ‘Missed’, which was included on her first album and Dermot described as “the best ever first audition”.

Ella, 25, auditioned on the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012, finishing sixth after being a firm favourite among fans.

Appearing on This Morning today to promote her latest album, Ella said: “It’s weird watching it with you because this is a ten year full circle.

“It feels like yesterday sometimes and then it feels like forever ago - and you were there right from the start Dermot.

“You’re one of those people who held me under your wing and I was only 16 - I know I sound like Louis Walsh saying that, but you really did look after me.”

Ella also revealed that Dermot took Ella and fellow contestants on a midnight tour of London during the live shows stage of the X Factor.

She said: “I’m from Lincolnshire, so I had never been about in London. He took us all on an 11:30pm to midnight walk because that was when the press and paparazzi had all disappeared."

Dermot joked: “I do want to stress - it was us all. It wasn’t just taking you, a 16-year-old girl on a walk around London.”

Ella went on to say that the main draw for entering X Factor was a rule change that allowed contestants to audition with their own original material.

Dermot said: “You’re pretty much the first person ever to audition with their own song.

“It doesn’t seem that unique now, but it was something completely new for the show and almost marked a sea change for how the show went about finding talent.”

Dermot and co-host Alison Hammond asked Ella about what she has been up to in the years since she released her first album and why she decided to take a break from the industry.

She said: “It’s been a very wild ride. I’ve never stopped writing and creating.

“So much happened to me at such a young age. I signed at 16, ‘Ghost’ happened at 18-years-old.

“It went crazy for a few years - all I knew was travel, travel, promote, promote, tour, tour.

"It was incredible, but when I came back I realised I didn’t know where my home was, who my friends were anymore, I didn’t have a sofa in my flat.”

Ella described her new album, Everything I Didn’t Say, as an accumulation of the last few years, calling it an “album of word vomit”.

She said: “So much has happened in my life: the good, the bad, the ugly.”
