The 16-year-old appears in a gorgeous shoot for us in this week’s issue, on sale today, and tells us: “Let me explain it like this. George is my best friend. Jaymi is like my big brother, JJ is hilarious and, yeah, like…”
Ella revealed that she and Josh are “very close” and hoping to spend more time together when The X Factor finishes.

“At the moment [we are just] very close and good friends, but after the competition, I’d love to see him. I do want to spend time with him. Only time will tell.”
