Cheryl Fernandez-Versini

The X Factor quarter final weekend was certainly not without drama, as not one but two contestants succumbed to illness.

On last night's results show, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was heard "screaming" for help as one of her singers, Celina from 4th Impact, collapsed and fell to the floor.

Celina reportedly fainted and was "out cold" for around five minutes, shortly after she and her sisters were booted off the show in favour of Lauren Murray.

The Filipino singer was taken off stage by paramedics and brought to an ambulance.

Although her mentor Cheryl remained on stage for The Xtra Factor, viewers said she looked "visibly shaken."

Later the band tweeted to let fans know Celina was doing better, while Cheryl thanked all four girls for being "most gracious, humble & special little souls.":

It's not the first time Celina has suffered health issues during her stint in the show – a few weeks back she fainted before a performance and struggled to stay standing as she sang with her sisters.

In the end, a chair was brought on stage for her to sit on as the judges rushed through their post-performance comments.

Of course, 4th Impact weren't the only ones dogged by health issues this week.

The show's favourite to win, Louisa Johnson, has been separated from her fellow contestants due to a nasty throat infection which Simon Cowell worries will spread.

Louisa admitted on Saturday night's show that she was in pain and said only "adrenaline" had helped her to make it through her renditions of Justin Bieber's Love Yourself and Labyrinth's Jealous.

For now the contestants have been urged to sleep in separate rooms in the X Factor house, and producers have been doling out the Lemsip and hand sanitiser.

"If any of the other contestants come down with the same thing we will really struggle," a source told The Sun. 

"Olly [Murs] is also sick and struggling. The bugs going round at the moment are really nasty."

A collapse and a throat virus… hopefully that's the end of the X Factor illnesses for this year.



Although she's generally quiet about her private life in the media, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini knows when to speak up and set the record straight.

And that's what she seems to be doing this week, after some fairly serious allegations of drug use.

The singer was pictured in a public toilet at last Sunday night's British Fashion Awards, washing her hands next to what appeared to be four white lines of powder.

Although the photo was deleted just minutes after it was posted by fashion editor Laura Craik, the image was screen-grabbed and posted online.

And now, almost a week on, Cheryl has taken to Instagram to show she won't be taking any false accusations lying down.

"On the phone to my lawyer like," she wrote next to a picture of a sassy-faced Barack Obama speaking on a mobile phone.

"#Tryme #oohwatchmewatchme #allofthelightsallofthelightssss," she added.

Posting earlier in the day, the X Factor judge seemed determined to stay optimistic despite her rough week. "Positive vibes," she wrote, next to a quote about holding on to "genuine people."

Cheryl has spoken up in the past about negative comments online – mainly about her noticeable weight loss over the last year.

"I am so sick and tired of it being ok to call somebody too thin or a ‘bag of bones’," she wrote on Twitter earlier this year.

"I would never dream of calling somebody too fat and that they should maybe cut down on their food intake? What is the difference?"



At first glance, this photo reportedly taken of Cheryl Fernandez-Versini at last night's British Fashion Awards appears perfectly innocuous.

Washing her hands in the sink of a public bathroom, Cheryl is looking away from the camera and seems unaware the photo is being taken. But a quick glance at the bottom half of the photo shows something very incriminating – what appear to be four lines of white powder.

According to The Sun, fashion editor Laura Craik posted the photo to her personal Instagram account with the caption "Sadness in her eyes."

She deleted it almost immediately, but not before some of her eagle-eyed followers had screen-grabbed it.

A source close to Cheryl has today strongly denied anything untoward was going on and insists the X Factor judge was only there to use the bathroom.

The source adds there is nothing to suggest that the singer was aware of any white powder in her vicinity.

"It’s outrageous that someone in the fashion industry has taken a picture of Cheryl like this and posted it publicly," the insider tells The Sun.

"She absolutely despises drugs and any connection linking her to them is ridiculous. She was just using the toilet."

Cheryl is reportedly in talks with her lawyers and is considering legal action against Ms. Craik, who is well known in the fashion industry and has over 5,000 followers on Instagram.

The singer is not the first celebrity to have denied taking drugs after awards show footage went viral.

Shortly after August's MTV VMAs, a video of Taylor Swift holding something up to her nose while a team of assistants blocked her from the view of backstage cameras made it online.

A member of her team could be seen checking her nose with a torch before she walked away.

The clip was uploaded onto YouTube and viewed several thousand times before it was removed. Taylor's reps later said the singer was simply blowing her nose and didn't want the footage to make it onto MTV.



Everyone who's anyone seems to know that the ultimate red carpet accessory is a decent set of pearly whites.

Yup, unless you're in possession of a ridiculously smile, your career can really – or so says Hollywood, anyway.

And it is quite amazing how a new set of chompers can totally transform a person's face. Even established names – Tom Cruise, we're looking at you – have opted for major dental work (in his case, back in 2002) to alter a less-than megawatt bite. 

Join us while we drool and contemplate getting the braces back on with the most impressive of celebrity teeth transformations.


1) Miley Cyrus

You can’t make lewd gestures with your tongue if you ain’t got the perfect set of teeth.


2) Tom Cruise 

Mmm, a buck tooth. What every girl dreams of from a Hollywood heart throb.


3) Niall Horan 

A case of right place, right time brought Niall into 1D, and thousands bought him that smile.


4) Gwen Stefani 

Gwen is fashion royalty, her braces were arguably not.


5) Zac Efron 

We can’t even #toocute


6) Cher Lloyd 

Questionable brows distracted from Cher’s perfectly acceptable teeth when she first appeared on X Factor, but this whole transformation is pretty impressive #thepowerofmoney


7) Cheyl Fernandez-Versini 

Cheryl was always beautiful, but those pearly whites took her dimpled smile to a new level.


8) Victoria Beckham

Posh is human perfection, good teeth or bad. We all know that. 


9) Tulisa 

Got teeth done, got voted FHM’s sexiest woman. Go figure.


10) Mathew Lewis 

This overall transformation from Neville Longbottom to absolute ride is pretty astonishing but those teeth sure do help. Yum! 


Cheryl and her French businessman husband Jean-Bernard have been married for less than two years, but their relationship has been under intense scrutiny from the beginning.

The pair have battled their fair share of separation rumours in the 16 months since they wed. Now, it looks like Jean-Bernard has had enough. 

He addressed speculation that the two are headed for a split because of the huge amounts of time they spend apart.

The 32-year old X Factor judge has been open about her hectic schedule they is keeping her on the road and apart from her husband.

Yesterday he took to social media and blasted those who make claims that they are heading for a separation. According to The Mirror, he has been away on business in France and Dubai and explained his absence on Instagram. 

“Yes I am working like everybody else to put food on the table but my priority is my wife as this is the last person that is family.”

He also wrote that he was “always going to be there” for is wife and that “even when my dad died I put my life on the line for my wife.”

“This is just nonsense. What matters is family and my wife is my only one left so if she need me I am always going to be there. My wife Cheryl is my priority nothing else.” 

Speculation about their duo’s marriage was sent into overdrive when it was noted that Cheryl had skipped her husband’s birthday celebrations in August.

He instead opted to spend his night partying until the wee hours with his friends.

This is not the first time that Cheryl's hubby has felt the need to defend their marriage. While he says he doesn't often comment on stories about them in the media, he did leave an interesting comment on a video posted by Nick Grimshaw. 

While it was quickly deleted, that didn't stop social media users from branding him posessive and rude. "Your comments on here earlier were pathetic. Did you delete them because you realised how stupid and unwanted they were too," commented one user. 


He's in the notoriously tricky Overs category – not to mention that he doesn't get a whole load of love from the X Factor judges either. 

But it seems that the wider public is really getting behind Anton Stephens: leaked figures show almost a quarter of voters (23 percent) gave him the nod a week ago – meaning he beat bookies favourite Louisa Johnson (13 percent) by almost two-to-one.

Still, his most recent offering prompted the four-strong judging panel to throw a load of negative comments in his direction.

Indeed, Mr Stephens, who is being mentored by Simon Cowell, has now admitted even he wasn't a fan of the performance.

On the Xtra Factor the singer, who sang a mash of Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass and Jessie J’s Bang Bang, explained: "I hated it. When I watched it back I just thought, 'Oh My God'.

"All that gold, and very little of me!"

And speaking about the song choices, Anton described singing them as like "wearing shoes that aren’t your size".

Nick Grimshaw had earlier stated that the staging as "like watching a really bad musical". "Those two songs are the worst songs you could have done," he added.

The same figures, obtained by The Daily Star On Sunday and collected on October 31, show that Seann Miley Moore made it into third place – just 1 percent behind Louisa.

However, despite this initial popularity, shockingly he went home last night as part of double-elimination special. 



Even with a total revamp this year, The X Factor is struggling to keep ratings up – in fact last week's results show pulled in less viewers than Antiques Roadshow in the UK.

With that in mind, we reckon ITV producers were either furious or delighted with Rita Ora's on-air gaffe on Saturday night.

After all, forgetting your contestant's name isn't exactly professional, but it's one way to drum up some extra publicity for the show.

The singer was introducing Monica Michaels for her Reinvention Week performance when she went blank, completely forgetting the contestant's name.

"Coming up next we have someone who is amazing," she confidently told the audience, before stumbling and adding, "It’s my girl… It’s my girl…"

Simon Cowell can be heard in the background saying, "Who is it? You’ve forgotten, haven’t you?" while Rita hunts for a clue in her notes.

In the end Cheryl shoots her some VERY evil eyes and mutters "It's Monica," while Rita laughs the whole thing off, saying "I'm only joking, it's Monica."

Talk about an awkward moment. Take a look below from 0:55:

Even from early on in the new series, Rita has been less than committed, pulling out of auditions due to other commitments.

Hopefully she gets her act together in time for next week.


The final twelve X Factor contestants have been put through months of gruelling auditions, trials and competitions, but now it seems the lucky dozen can live in luxury for the rest of their time on the show. 

The Mail Online exclusively revealed that this year's X Factor house is in Barnet's Beech Hill, North London and costs a cool £7m (€9m) to buy or £20,000 (€27,000) to rent each month.

It comes complete with a cinema room, an indoor swimming pool and a steam room as well as a state-of-the-art car lift (OK, then?). 

The seven-bedroom detached property is in one of London's most prestigious streets and described by estate agents as a 'premier road', where homes are entered via high electric gates.

The gates open up into a large driveway where cars can collect contestants and take them to the show's nearby studio.

The unveiling of the property comes after X Factor judges Simon, Cherly, Rita and Nick chose their final three acts for the live rounds of the show. 

Judge Nick Grimshaw selected Mason Noise, Che Chesterman and Seann Miley Moore as his final three Boys, while Rita Ora announced Louisa Johnson, Lauren Murray and Keira Weathers as her Girls.

Cheryl Fernandez Versini has 4th Impact, Alien Uncovered, and Reggie n Bollie as her Groups.

Simon Cowell has Max Stone, Bupsi and Anton Stephans in his Overs category.


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.”


Rita Ora  is seen suffering from a serious bout of anxiety on tonight's X Factor.

The singer, 24, is the first to be faced with the new Six Chair Challenge – in which she must whittle down her Girls from 16 to six – alongside her fellow judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Nick Grimshaw.

But Rita visibly struggles making her choice between two contestants, as the audience reacts aggressively.

"The crowd is crazy out there. I think I'm having a mini panic attack. Oh my God! I feel so sick."

The audience then begin to boo and mock her for not making a choice, to which she tearfully says: "I can't do it. I actually can't do it."

She then goes on to say, "It's getting definitely intense. I'm probably the most hated person in the UK right now. It's so unfair. This is the hardest thing in the world – they hate me right now."

Rita is then seen falling out with main judge Simon, calling him "rude" as they fight about the contestants. 

With this amount of drama, tonight's episode will not want to be missed!


X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez Versini has said that she thinks she is a “low maintenance” type of gal, but she is also prone to shouting when she gets into arguments.

However, she did explain that she doesn’t lose her head over the smaller things:

“I've learnt how to express my feelings in a calm way, even if I do want to shout. And if I shout? You know it's bad. But I save it for the big things – I never lose it over the toilet seat being left up."


Good to know! The 32-year old was chatting with InStyle magazine about her marriage. When asked what being married to the her is like, the Geordie had some interesting comments:

“I think I'm low maintenance, but maybe I'm deluded… My day gets planned in advance all the time, so I’m like. ‘Oh, actually change that. We can’t meet tonight’.”

She also discussed the attention her physical appearance has been receiving of late. Cheryl thinks there is a “crazy” double standard when it comes to body image.

“You'd never be allowed to say to somebody, 'Oh, you look a bit fat.

And being overweight is unhealthy – it's actually a bad message to tell someone who is obese that they look 'curvy' or 'great'.”

She added that after being in the media for so long now, she doesn’t think there’s anything said about her that she hasn’t already heard.

Cheryl admitted that while she’s developed a thicker skin surrounding the attention she gets in the media, and when it comes to those toilet seat discussions- she thinks she needs to toughen up on the X Factor.

"I’m like a sponge and I’m too sensitive. It was making us ill with stress and worry.

People think, 'Oh, she's sitting there in a pretty dress,' but I get so wrapped up in the arguments that the contestants are having. It affects me."


It seems there is a lot of fighting on the X Factor this year – and this time it's between the judges. 

New X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw has ridiculed Rita Ora's judging on the reality TV show, even though they're meant to be BFFs. 

Harsh Nick. 

The 31 year-old has been seen mocking the singer for her frequent misuse of clichés on the show. 

Her latest blunder saw the 24 year-old claim it's impossible to "read a book by its cover" while critiquing an act. 

Nick said: "''Last night (sunday), this one really took the biscuit. Read a book by its cover? That's not right – it's judge a book by its cover. She gets her analogies just a little bit confused.''

The BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host said that there is more unfortunate misquotes to come. 

''It's yet to come on the show but I remember in the auditions (when she said) 'I feel like a fish that has jumped out of the water and has been run over.'"

''I said, 'Do you mean a fish out of water?'"

And Nick isn't the only one blasting Rita on the show, as she has been slammed by insiders as having "nothing useful to say", reports the Irish Mirror. 

Even viewers of the show agree as she appears to be making a lot of slip ups, including asking if Newcastle is in Britain. 

One viewer wrote on Twitter: "no way did rita ora ask if newcastle was part of england, I'm losing the will to live"

While another added: "rita ora just asked whether Newcastle was a British place… NO ONE CAN BE THIS STUPID I'M SORRY"

It seems that there will be a lot of back-and-forward bickering to come on the show, but back with the judges, Rita isn't the only one Nick is having problems with. 

He has also ridiculed Cheryl for her inappropriate use of the word "literally". 

''I like it when Cheryl says literally, but then what she says isn't literally."

"Like she says, 'You literally blew the roof off Wembley.' But they didn't blow the roof off Wembley. did they? Or, 'You literally blew me away.' 'But they didn't really blow you away Cheryl.''

It seems like there might be more action with the judges this year than the contestants!
