After her shock exit this Sunday, Ella Henderson had another shock to deal with: Arg from The Only Way is Essex has a 'crush' on her.
James 'Arg' Argent told Digital Spy earlier this month that the singer was "lovely" and "amazing." But he stated that 16 was "way too young".
But Ella laughed off Arg's 'crush' when Digital Spy spoke to her after her Sunday night exit.
The sixteen-year-old stressed that Arg sees her as a 'little sister' and his comments were not meant in a romantic way.
Ella said: "I don't think he's got a crush on me, no. No!
"He's a funny guy and he shaved all his hair off so I call him the hamster. No, he's a really nice guy and he sings himself as well so I think it's just something he related back to me. He looks at me like I'm a little sister."
Ooh, perhaps a musical collaboration is in the pipeline then?
But Henderson swiftly dashed our dreams of a hit single. "I'm sure we'll be singing on a karaoke at some point" she said.
Ella continued to play down Arg's 'crush' and revealed that the whole cast of The Only Way is Essex were big supporters of her.
"The TOWIE cast are all massive fans of mine and they're all tweeting me all the time," she added.
"I think I'm actually invited to a TOWIE party over in December so I can't wait to meet them all properly and have a night with them all, it would be fun."
Ooh, we'd love her to make an appearance in the live TOWIE episode airing at the beginning of December. Seeing Ella and Arg on karaoke would be just swell!
