The X Factor's Ella Henderson has signed a record contract with Sony Music.

The 16-year-old singer, who was booted off the ITV competition last month, confirmed that she had beaten runner-up Jahmene Douglas and boyband Union J to landing a lucrative deal.

"Hopefully this time next year I'll show people why I'm here. I'm so excited to go into the studio and do what I've always wanted to do," she told RTE's Saturday Night Show.

"I've written stuff already but I can't wait to write new stuff," she added.

Ella, who is being managed by her dad, later told her Twitter fans: "Thank u for your messages :) #JustTheBeginning ;) xx"

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
