Sinitta tells Cheryl: Stay in your lane!
X FACTOR’S Sinitta has labelled Cheryl Tweedy taking over her telly role as ‘below the belt’.
The So Macho singer, who previously dated show creator Simon Cowell and has featured as a guest mentor at the judges’ houses stage, issued some choice words after it was reported at the weekend she has been ousted for the new mum.
‘You can’t look like that, have hair like that, have Liam [Payne], have the perfect baby, the perfect body, the perfect face, be a pop star, be drop-dead gorgeous and take Judges’ Houses,’ she said.
‘She needs to stay in her lane a little bit. I love you, Chez, but don’t even go there — not that I’m bothered.’
Sinitta added that she had been under the impression she would return to the show, but admitted, ‘Simon has been a bit quiet on text and WhatsApp’.
But she isn’t going quietly, pointing out that Cheryl might not be so keen to flash the flesh as her.
‘Let’s put it this way, has Cheryl ever done Simon’s judges’ houses? Would it be appropriate? Would she wear leaves?’ she queried.
Sinitta famously wore a skimpy outfit made only of palm leaves in the 2009 series.
In a parting shot, she said she was 100 per cent behind the show , but added: ‘Cheryl doing judges’ houses? That’s a little below the belt.’
