X Factor’s Cher is Cheryl’s pet piranha, according to crew

X Factor staff call Cher Lloyd ‘Cheryl’s pet Piranha’ and joke that she looks permanently like a perpetually cross little troll.

There are widespread tales of her short temper and fierce pursuit of victory at any cost, but audiences are beginning to realize that the 17-year-old teen is hardly the fragile, girl-next-door type that she first appeared to be. She has quickly gone from bookies favourite to odds-on to go out first tonight, as X Factor reaches its finale.

Rows over the sing off between her and Mary Byrne on Sunday, where some viewers felt that the result was fixed in favour of Cher, has made her very unpopular as controversy around her increases more and more. The singer’s parents have received hate mail, which includes a threat in the form of a plastic white skeleton.

Her father, Darren, said that although the behaviour has been very upsetting and unpleasant, Cher will not let a couple of idiots ruin her dream. Her mother Dina said Cher was hit hard when her fans forgot to vote.

However, it seems that she is not as popular as she once was. An old school friend of Cher’s came forward and said that she was a fame-hungry bully.
