Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has had a lot to say about her weight – just last week she hit out at critics who say she’s too skinny by asking if it would be acceptable to brand someone else ‘fat’.

But there was no denying just how tiny she looked on the red carpet at The X Factor 2015 second round of auditions in Manchester today.

She wore a black crop top and matching flared trousers for her arrival at Event City Manchester, where she’s acting as one of the judges on this year’s talent show.


It comes after a picture she posted on her Instagram a week ago attracted comments from followers worried about her size.

After reading the feedback, Cheryl hit back, saying she was “sick and tired” of it being acceptable to call somebody “too thin or a ‘bag of bones’”.

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

“You have no idea what I have been through. Just losing my father in law v recently and everything that comes with that. Not that I am or should justify myself to anyone,” she continued.

“I’m so f**king sick of people thinking it’s OK to be mean or body shame anyone. And it’s woman on woman. Have some respect and maybe think there may be reasons why before opening your mouth please.

“I am just tired of the ignorance...At some point it’s just enough. Some people are naturally thin. My mother is all of 4’11 and six stone something. And is incredible healthy and happy,” she finished.

Despite the negative comments, Cheryl looked very smiley and happy as she posed with fans on the red carpet.

She and her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini celebrated their first wedding anniversary yesterday without much fanfare – no doubt Chez wanted to conserve her energy for today instead.
