Sinitta is not happy about the possibility of being replaced by Cheryl on The X Factor.
Amid swirling rumours Cheryl could be heading back to the ITV show to sit alongside Simon Cowell during his judges houses, the music mogul’s usual advisor Sinitta is making it clear that she won’t be going down without a fight.
When asked about the rumours the former Girls Aloud star could replace her, she told The Sun that she thinks the new mum needs to “stay in her lane.”
“You can’t look like that, have hair like that, have Liam [Payne], have the perfect baby, the perfect body, the perfect face, be a pop star, be drop-dead gorgeous and take Judges’ Houses,” she jokingly (we think!) replied.
“She needs to stay in her lane a little bit,” the “So Macho” singer then continued. “I love you Chez but don’t even go there – not that I’m bothered.” Well.
Sinitta then admitted that she was under the impression that she would be back by Simon’s side for judges houses this year but has been left in the dark amid swirling rumours that Cheryl could make her triumphant return to the spotlight instead.
“I thought I was coming back but now I’ve heard Cheryl is coming back,” she continued of possibly making an appearance on the talent search this year. “Simon has been a bit quiet – on text messages and Whatsapp.”
The singer and X Factor staple then added that if Simon really has gone behind her back and asked Cheryl to return that that would be “below the belt.”
Yikes. Your move, Simon!
