Not that this surprises us in the least.

The singer has reportedly started a bidding war between a handful of record labels who are all keen to sign her up.

And one of those labels includes Syco, owned by Simon Cowell.

Surely this defeats the who point of the X Factor no?

A source told today's Sun: "Ella is the most exciting thing to have come out of this year's X Factor.

"Simon can't believe she got the boot, but he's not losing any sleep over it as he can see the pound signs in his eyes.

"He's confident Syco will get her, but if she goes elsewhere within Sony he's still quids in."

Other record labels who are also vying for Ella's attention include Columbia, Epic and RCA.

It seems that Ella is one popular lady at the moment.

However, Ella Henderson won't be agreeing to any deals herself, instead leaving it up to her manager and father Sean Henderson.

Well, she is only 16-years-old after all.

Ella told omg! earlier this week that she would be pushing to make sure her first album is a collection of original material penned by herself.
