From Rome to London: is Cheryl’s jet-set lifestyle making her SICK?

Posting a stunning snap to her Instagram account, it's clear that X Factor's Cheryl Fernandez Versini had picked an incredible location for judges' houses this year.

Admitting that she was a lucky girl, she shared a photograph from Rome, Italy, which showed the breathtaking lakeside view from her bedroom.

Unsurprisingly, it was an image which quickly garnered more than 35,000 likes. 

"Oh wow… what I would give to be sat there for a couple of hours… amazing image x," one fan said in response.

"Wow such An amazing view," said another, while a third added: "What a beautiful view!! You are one lucky girl."

The 32-year-old singer was in the Eternal City for a whistle-stop, two-night stay. There, she was faced with the task of whittling down the groups from a total of six to just three. 

And rather than hire a private jet to transport her and her entourage, Ms Fernandez Versini was happy to catch a BA flight from London there and back, although she did enjoy a helicopter transfer to the luxurious villa on arrival in Rome. 

Still, her return journey was not entirely without incident: she said that she was surrounded by coughing and sneezing sick passengers. "Dear work," she added in an Instagram picture, "I think I'm getting sick I may need a week off."

Luckily, however, Cheryl had recovered sufficiently to make BFF and fellow Girls Aloud songstress Nicola Roberts's 30th birthday bash.

Held in London's swish Hotel Chantelle in Mayfair, the woman-of-hour herself looked stunning in a full-length black dress with thigh-high slit and a deep-V neckline.


Happy 30th to this gorgeous lady @lilcola thanks for a super fun night

Also in attendance was Kimberley Walsh, though noticeably absent were Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle. 

The Roman episode of judges' houses will be aired later this month on The X Factor. Cheryl was accompanied on the trip by guest judge, Jess Glynne.

Simon Cowell, meanwhile, was in France for the same segment, while Rita Ora jetted to LA. Due to additional work commitments, Rick Grimshaw remained in England.
