Speaking on today's 'This Morning', the 16-year-old said: "I do feel massively gutted, I would've loved to have made it through to the finals... and I think everyone in that situation would.But you never know how its going to spin round, that bottom two and and I kind of expecting it.
"I think everybody kind of assumed that I was going to make it to the final but in my head I'm so proud of myself for getting this far, and so much good is going to come off from coming off the back of this show for me and I just want to spur on and go back into my songwriting."
And Ella also admitted she thought she might leave the show this week, saying: "I woke up on Sunday morning with this gut feeling, this bad feeling. Union J were with me all day yesterday and they said I looked really dazed and I wasn't properly with it, and I think you know when it's going to happen in a really strange way. It's so weird but I kind of had this bad feeling all day."
"I woke up this morning with part of me gutted, and its going to be weird coming out of this intense X Factor bubble... but most of me is feeling relieved and really excited about 2013.
"It's going to kick off with the X Factor tour and then away from that I just hope that I can go into writing an album and releasing it."
We'll be buying it Ella, doncha worry.
