Caroline Flack cries whenever she speaks to 'X Factor' contestant Ella Henderson.
The 'Xtra Factor' presenter is a big fan of the 16-year-old star - who is the early favourite to be crowned the winner of the ITV1 show - and admits she has to be given some private time alone when she's finished interviewing the wannabe.
She told BANG Showbiz: "Even when Ella Henderson talks to me, she makes me cry, it's not just when she sings. She's so emotional. When I've finished interviewing her I'm always like, 'I'm going to have to have a moment on my own for a minute.' "
Caroline also praised 'X Factor' contestant James Arthur and admitted she got emotional when she saw him perform at the Judges' Houses stage of the competition, which will be screened this weekend.
Speaking at a gig at London's Senate House for Arthur's Day, which celebrated the life of late Guinness founder Arthur Guinness, on Thursday night (27.09.12), she added: "There were some performances at Judges' Houses that really made me cry. James Arthur is so good. When he sings, it gets you there. I've never had that before with an 'X Factor' contestant. When he sings it's almost like you want to fix him a little bit."
The Arthur's Day celebrations also featured a special performance by Wretch32 from a balcony of Senate House, as well as sets by VV Brown, Razorlight and Sir Tom Jones, who delved into his extensive back catalogue performing tracks such as 'Delilah', 'It's Not Unusual' and 'Mama Told Me Not To Come'.
Celebrities in attendance included Ray Winstone's daughter Jamie Winstone, Kate Walsh and Laura Whitmore.
Arthur's day has been celebrated in Ireland since 2009, and this year marked the first time celebrations have been held in London, as well as 55 other cities across the world.
