Ella Henderson on upcoming 'X Factor' return: 'I'm excited and nervous to perform again'

Songstress Ella Henderson has revealed that the thought of heading back to 'The X Factor' makes her very nervous, but she feels lucky to have been asked to sing live on the show later this week. 

She will perform her new single 'Yours' during the results show on Sunday, November 30 and told Digital Spy that returning to the show is something she feels very emotional about:

"It's definitely a mixture of emotions. I'm so excited about going back. Especially with the amazing artists who have been performing on that show - I know how lucky it is to get that spot. But returning is still going to be nerve-racking. The last time I stood on that stage for that show was when I came off!"

Henderson, meanwhile, recently admitted that her relationship with former mentor Simon Cowell is a strong one and she sees him regularly: 

"I see Simon more than I see my parents. I think of him as my cool uncle. When I see him, he will always come and sit and have a chat. He is so normal, so down to earth. He will just sit there with a bottle of Becks in his hand. It's strange because he is the guy on the telly you're petrified of, but he is lovely. He has been so amazing and supportive through this process."
