Ella Henderson: 'Ed Sheeran is very supportive and gave me great advice'

Ella Henderson says Ed Sheeran has been on hand to give her "great" advice.

The singer initially found fame when she finished as a finalist on the 2012 X Factor.

Last year the Brit achieved massive success with her debut single 'Ghost' and resultant album 'Chapter One'.

Speaking to ITV's Lorraine, Henderson said that Sheeran has helped guide her through the pitfalls of fame.

She said: "I met him just towards the end of last year, actually. We both performed on the X Factor final together and I returned as a guest, which was crazy for me thinking I was returning as a guest performer, not as a contestant anymore.

"But yeah, I mean he's very supportive and kind. You know what, he just gave me great advice. We shared a jet together and he just really opened up to me about what it is like in the first year. Last year for me was very crazy - it happened so fast and it was very unexpected. To have someone to just simply say, 'It's alright, that's okay', and to not feel like you need to stop and look back, you'll have time to do that in your old age."

She concluded: "For someone to actually turn round and say that to you, it's nice - especially someone like him who I respect."
