Katie Waissel and Cher Lloyd come to blows
'X Factor' hopefuls Katie Waissel and Cher Lloyd have reportedly come to blows after Cher stole a pair of military-style trousers earmarked for Katie's performance last Saturday (13.11.10)
'X Factor' rivals Katie Waissel and Cher Lloyd have come to blows over costume choices.
The 17-year-old hopeful - who has been dubbed a "mini Cheryl Cole" - was said to be furious when she saw controversial Katie was planning to wear a pair of military-style trousers for last Saturday's (13.11.10) performance.
When the 24-year-old singer popped out for her lunch, sneaky Cher reportedly pinched the costume - which is very similar to that worn by Cheryl Cole in her 'Fight for This Love' video - to wear herself.
An insider explained: "There was a lot of screaming, shouting and name-calling. Basically Cher nicked Katie's costume and all hell broke loose. It's dirty tricks now the competition is hotting up. Poor Katie couldn't believe what Cher had done.
"She is even more gutted that Cher has been allowed to get her own way. In the end she stormed back to her dressing room and had next to no time to find a new outfit. A lot of people thought she looked like she had just walked in off the street on Saturday but no-one knew the story behind it."
However, the latest row is likely to prove awkward for judge Cheryl Cole - who mentors both girls - as the pair are said to be no longer speaking.
The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: "The two girls can't stand one another now. The contest has got very dirty. Katie and Cher aren't speaking again.
"This has really been the worst year for tantrums."
