Cheryl Fernandez-Versini says her performance on 'The X Factor' was inspired by Lola Saunders, who has been voted off the programme

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini says her performance on 'The X Factor' on Sunday (02.11.14) was inspired by Lola Saunders.

The 31-year-old beauty delivered an eye-catching rendition of her new single 'I Don't Care' and speaking after the programme, she revealed Lola - who was voted off the ITV reality show - encouraged her sexy moves.

Cheryl told the Metro newspaper: "Lola has given me some dance moves this week, so I actually learnt a few from her." Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini - Cheryl's new husband - was among the crowd for the live show, and whereas he is usually reserved during her performances, the Frenchman appeared to be enjoying watching his wife in action.

A source explained: "JB is usually bored during the live show recordings but he couldn't tear his eyes off her during her stunning performance.

"He was clapping the whole time and also whipped out his camera to photograph her. He looked so proud. Normally he is not even watching what is happening on stage."

Meanwhile, Lola has been gushing about her boyfriend of four years, Jordan, revealing her mother was instrumental in the pair getting together.

She explained: "My mum always used to say, 'Isn't Jordan nice?' and I would think, 'Yeah'.

"He was always dead shy at school so it was after school we got together and things blossomed. But my mum was the matchmaker. If she said, 'I don't like him', I would be put off."
