How Did Ella Henderson End Up On A Plane With Ed Sheeran And Cookies On Her Eyes?


Fri, March, 6 by


Ella Henderson is on the brink of super stardom. She performed for an upcoming Much Office Session just feet from our desks and her voice was INCREDIBLE!

Despite being a strong favourite to win, Ella made it to sixth place on the ninth season of The X Factor in 2012. Her breakout single “Ghost” has gone certified platinum in four countries and was in the Top 5 of the UK Singles Chart for eight weeks. She also has started hobnobbing with some of pop music’s hottest names. She posted this picture on Instagram recently. Recognise that red head?

Yup, Ed Sheeran. When she came through Much recently, we wanted to get the story behind that ridiculous picture of Ella with cookies on her eyes.

“What happened was we were both doing an event in Germany and we were both having to fly back to the UK the next morning to be performing on The X-Factor final as guest performers which was quite exciting, in the UK, so we shared a jet and it was amazing to get to know him,” Ella said.

“He has to be one of the most humble, interesting, kind, hard-working… he is just incredible and he deserves every single bit of what he has. I don’t know how I ended up with biscuits on my eyes. I just don’t know how that happened but we ended up for a picture and I was quite delirious I think.”

Check out more from the interview below, including the behind the scenes story of Ella’s new video with a panther.
