'User' Cher Lloyd
'X Factor' hopeful Cher Lloyd is said to be ''using'' One Direction's Harry Styles in the hope of ensuring her success in the talent competition
Cher Lloyd is "using" One Direction's Harry Styles to make sure she wins 'The X Factor'.
The 17-year-old singer is reportedly jealous of the attention received by rival Katie Waissel, and is desperate to grab headlines by refusing to comment on rumours she is romantically linked with Harry.
A source said: "Cher hated seeing Katie getting all the attention in the papers. She's no fool, and it seems she'll stop at nothing to win this year's show.
"If some like Harry falls in her lap, she'll use that. Cher is desperate to win the show and has seized the opportunity."
However, Harry's sister Gemma has confirmed the teenager is still single and learning how to deal with the fame the show has brought him.
She told heat magazine: "He's very trusting, and he's only now learning how to deal with all of this. He's still single at the moment. He wants a girl who likes him for him - not just because he's on 'The X Factor'.
A number of romances are already believed to have taken place in the house - Katie is thought to have had a romantic encounter with bearded singer Matt Cardle, while Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho has told viewers Irish contestant Mary Byrne has a "wonderful soul".
