‘Stick the X Factor up your arse,’ says loser Cher
Cher Lloyd, Cheryl Cole’s 17-year-old protege, stays defiant as she leaves show
Cher Lloyd, the 17-year-old contestant X Factor fans have loved to hate since the talent show's latest series began in August, has finally been voted out. But the Cheryl-Cole-alike remained defiant, apparently telling organisers: "You can stick the X Factor up your arse."
Cher's rapped, electro'd-up medley of Clapping Song/Get Ur Freak On coaxed Simon Cowell into praise but didn't impress the audience who put her in last place behind Matt Cardle, Rebecca and boy-band One Direction.
Speaking on the show immediately after she was voted out, Cher told a TV audience of 20m: "You haven't seen the last of me, definitely not.
"I’m going to use this as my platform and I'm going to make sure I'm the biggest goddamn thing to ever come out of the X Factor. And that’s not being cocky; it’s just being very, very committed to what I do."
According to the Sunday Mirror, Cher's behaviour had been increasingly difficult. At a rehearsal earlier this week, the paper says, she subjected choreographers to a tirade, shouting: "You lot have wanted me out from the beginning – all of you have.
"I know Danni and Louis have hated me from the beginning – but I don't care. I couldn't give a fuck. I've got Cheryl Cole, that’s all that matters."
Giving the assembled staff two fingers, she added: "I didn't want to win anyway. I'm going to make it anyway. You lot can stick it up your arse."
Speaking after last night's show, the Malvern teenager said she had been "blessed" to be supported through the show by Cheryl Cole – whom she closely resembles. She added: "I'm very different. I'm flattered to be compared, but I am my own person." ·
