X Factor 2011: Tulisa Contostavlos cried as Laverne Scott-Roberts fans chanted for Cheryl Cole!

Tulisa Contostavlos reportedly broke down in tears yesterday, after the X Factor audience chanted and called for Cheryl Cole to return.

The N-Dubz singer was criticising contestant Laverne Scott-Roberts, when the crowd at Manchester’s EventCity arena started booing and heckling her and calling for Cheryl Cole to come back.

The situation wasn’t made any easier when fellow judge Gary Barlow disagreed with her critique of the singer and said:

“I don’t know what you’re going on about Tulisa.”

Audience members who attended the audition venue, have claimed that the ITV show is going to suffer without both Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole.

A source said: “It’s strange without Simon, but the format’s really missing Cheryl.”
