Cowell offers Ella record deal

Three days after her shock exit from the XFactor, Simon Cowell has offered Ella Henderson a record deal.

The 16-year-old will be managed by her dad and will weigh up her options before signing on the dotted line.

Simon is keen to get her onto his Syco label but Columbia, Epic and RCA are also interested in her.

Ella ended up in the bottom two on last weekend’s X Factor together with James Arthur, as novelty act Rylan Clark sailed through to the next round.

Carolynne Poole was eliminated on the first week of the talent show facing Rylan in the sing-off, and said she doubts Ella will have any hard feelings towards Rylan.
