James Arthur has taken to Twitter to praise fellow X Factor UK star Ella Henderson's newly unveiled song 'Waiting'.

The X Factor contestant, who finished in sixth place on the 2012 series despite her huge popularity, revealed the rough demo this week to high praise on Twitter, including from the show's winner James.

The 'Impossible' singer showed he is still good friends with Ella by being one of the first to congratulate her on the song, the first Ella has revealed since her time on the show.

"My girl @Ella_Henderson #LOVE," James tweeted, alongside a link to the new song. "Love you to proud of ya Lil sis x."

Ella Henderson is widely expected to release her debut album later this year after signing a record deal soon after The X Factor 2012 finished.
