X Factor reject Ella Henderson has revealed mentor Tulisa Contostavlos felt she was to blame for the 16-year-old's shock exit from the show.

Ella missed a place in the quarter final after she lost out to fellow favourite James Arthur in Sunday night's sing-off.

The teenager told the Daily Mirror: "(Tulisa) was just absolutely gutted for me and I think she felt like she was to blame."

"She said we should have reminded people more of how important it is to vote and how you can't assume you're going to make your way to the final.

"I was telling her, 'Please don't feel that way at all. You've done absolutely everything you could and stuck by me from day one'."

Ella - who received a tweet from fan Simon Cowell after she was voted off - feels she has found a friend for life in the N-Dubz star.

She added: "She's not just helped me build as a performer but as a person."

You'd rather put people in an uncomfortable position than accept their inflexible position. By stirring up enough publicity, you could exert enough pressure to create some changes. A new set of rules will allow you to move forward with a brilliant plan. You'll get the full support of an influential executive who is tired of the old guard.More
