ELLA Henderson was meeting lawyers at music giant Sony yesterday, discussing her record deal.

The Tetney teenager, voted off The X factor in week seven, has been snapped up by the label, revealing the news on Ireland's The Saturday Night Show.

She told host Brendan O'Connor: "I'm just so, so excited to go into a studio and finally do what I've always wanted to.

"I have already written stuff, but I can't wait to write new material because I haven't done so through the period of the show, and I've experienced so many emotions."

Proud mum Michelle told the Telegraph that Ella is "over the moon". "She has been working so hard and it has now paid off. Record executives within Sony will be now pitching to Ella."

The family are looking forward to spending Christmas at home because Sean, Ella's dad, is in London managing her.

"It will be nice to spend Christmas as one family," Michelle added.

"It has been really hectic and Ella can't wait to chill out."

Singing tutor Stephanie Norman, of Clee Road, taught Ella for four years.

"Ella has a natural talent and it doesn't surprise me she has got the deal. I feel really proud I taught her," she said.
