Ella Henderson looks set to top the charts

The X Factor runner-up proves that she has what it takes to come out on top…

With her stunning debut single Ghost on track to top the UK singles chart this Sunday – according to the Official Chart Update, no less – Ella Henderson has come a long way since her days as an X Factor contestant back in 2012.

“I came away from the show and had no idea what was going to happen,” she tells us in our latest issue, “and literally the next day I had a phone call and the opportunity to get pitched for four different record labels.”

You clearly don’t need to win be a winner, at least not in Ella Henderson’s case, check out more from her in our new issue, available to download or pick up in shops now.

Ella teamed up with Ryan Tedder, the frontman of OneRepublic, to co-write her first single from her upcoming debut album, Chapter One, which is coming later this year. Excited doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Ghost is available to download on iTunes now.
