Since leaving ‘The X Factor’ in one of the show’s most controversial exits ever back in 2012, Ella signed to Simon Cowell’s record label Syco and then fell off the celeb radar while she worked hard on her debut release.

While some may have forgotten about Ella soon afterwards, as another series of ‘X Factor’ came and went, her hardcore fan-base were waiting with baited breath for her to put out some material, and their patience was rewarded when she unveiled her debut single ‘Ghost’ earlier this year, which quickly became a hit with critics and listeners alike.
