Catfight?! Geordie Vicky defends telling Cheryl to put on weight

X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini believes that body-shaming should be made illegal so it probably wasn’t very wise for ANYONE to comment on the singers weight – but Vicky Pattison went ahead and remarked on Ms FV's weight anyway.

After suggesting that Cheryl should head down to highstreet baker, Greggs, and get herself a pie, the former Geordie Shore was viciously trolled by the star’s loyal fans.

27-year-old Vicky – who has had her own weight struggles – defended her comments after she said: "Get yourself down to Greggs for a pie or a stottie cake. Get yourself to Newcastle pet, chill, have a night in with a Chinese."

But Vicky didn't realise how much criticism she would get from Cheryl's fans.

“I got shamelessly trolled by all of Cheryl’s soldiers. I understand that opinion about the nation’s sweetheart was going to be controversial but I didn’t mean it to be horrible,” Vicky told the Daily Star Sunday.

“The abuse I got was ridiculous. It was like I was a national hate figure.”

She added: "Cheryl is one of my favourite celebrities. All I said was she was a little bit thin and should go to Greggs."

“I wasn’t trying to body-shame her but all her fans jumped down my throat.”
