Cheryl loses it on Twitter after her NTA no-show

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was visibly absent from the National Television Awards last night, at which The X Factor won a Best Talent Show award.

Although the star gave no reason for not attending the awards, she took to Twitter to slam those who had been making assumptions about her absence.

"People should never jump to conclusions about others .. You never know what they may be dealing with #thatsall," she wrote, in what was her first time on Twitter in three weeks.

Shortly after, the X Factor judge tweeted again to congratulate her colleagues on their win, posting a throwback picture of herself, Mel B and Louis Walsh with the caption, "Congratulations to #Xf for winning the NTA last night!!! Woohoo #xf2014"

Yesterday's cryptic tweet isn't the first time Cheryl has lashed out on social media – when an Instagram fan accused her of miming on her X Factor performance late last year, she responded by saying, "Don’t mug yourself on my page. It’s not cute. Go teach yourself some dance instead.” Ouch!

The star hasn't been seen in public since last month, and although we reckon she is just taking some down time following a busy few months on The X Factor, we hope she is okay all the same.
