Cheryl addresses miming controversy as actor mocks her

Things got very awkward on Twitter after Cheryl Fernandez-Versini performed on The X Factor last night. 

The judge was accused of miming her new single I Don’t Care on last night’s show with speculation she hadn’t sung live quickly going viral on Twitter.

Now, the singer has denied that she was miming with a rep telling The Mirror: “She wasn’t miming.”

However, even her fellow celebrities seem to think she was miming, with EastEnders' Jake Wood tweeting: “Cheryl Nandos-Panini miming on TVs biggest LIVE singing show is like turning up 4 the 100m Olympic final wearing lederhosen & hobnail boots.”

 Former pop star Dane Bowers also tweeted: “There are many reason to mime…fair enough and perhaps @CherylOfficial had one but not admitting it just looks silly on a show like this!”
