Is Cheryl neglecting her acts?
Tuesday 09 November 2010
As the public stage protest about Cheryl Cole’s refusal to vote out one of her acts on Sunday, it appears the mentors remaining girls are also turning on her.
According to the Daily Mail, Cher Lloyd, Rebecca Ferguson and Katie Waissel, have complained to Simon Cowell about how little they see their mentor.
An insider told the Daily Mail: “The girls did speak to Simon and complained that Cheryl spends barely any time with them.
“Cheryl went to Los Angeles last week, but it didn’t even matter really as she only ever really sees the girls on Fridays for a final run-through, when other judges like Dannii [Minogue] and Louis [Walsh] are working so hard – and Simon, of course, is spending all his time with One Direction.”
And as tensions run high in the X factor HQ, booted-out contestant Treyc Cohen finally expressed her opinion on the controversial voting antics in an interview on This Morning yesterday.
Asked by host Phillip Schofield if she thought she performed better than Katie Waissel in the sing off on Saturday night, Miss Cohen said: “Yeah, definitely.”
Pressed by the TV Presenter on whether she thought her elimination was fair based on the sing off, she answered: “Um, probably not looking at it that way.
“Everyone has been talking about Katie’s performance and how she sat down on the floor and I know I finished my song and put my all into it.
“So if it was based on that then yeah, I definitely feel like I should have gone through.”
However, the 26-year-old believed her mentor's decision was the right one, saying: “When Cheryl said that she couldn’t pick I completely understand why she never.”
But fans of the ITV show are less sympathetic and many are making personal digs at Cheryl by posting spiteful comments - such as this joke on social-networking site Twitter: “What’s the difference between Ashley Cole and Cheryl Cole?
“Ashley has no problem picking a girl to go home.” - clearly referring to her ex-husbands infidelity throughout their marriage.
Despite the backlash, Miss Cohen told Schofield that she wasn’t bitter about her elimination, saying: “I’m a true believer of everything happens for a reason. Honestly, if I was meant to still be there I would be there.”
