Ella\s debut single 'Ghost' is on course to top the charts.

The Official Singles Chart report that over 78,000 copies of 'Ghost' have already been purchased in the UK.

The news doesn't come as much of a surprise, as within an hour of Ella releasing the single on Sunday (8 June), it climbed to number one on the iTunes music chart!

Ella said at the time: "Just woke up. Realised I'm not dreaming this! Ghost is at No.1! Lost for words! But I do wanna thank every1 of u that made this happen!"

'Ghost' was co-written by Ryan Tedder, who is the frontman of pop rock band One Republic.

Speaking about her collaboration with Ryan, Ella told Wonderland Magazine last month: "I wanted to make this big record and have it played worldwide, and he knows a special formula to write songs like that."

Ella shot to fame on The X Factor in 2012. Despite coming sixth on the ITV talent show, Ella went on to be signed by Simon Cowell's record label Syco.
