Lauren Platt: Simon and Cheryl take rows 'too far'
'X Factor' star Lauren Platt has revealed show judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are constantly bickering and often take their rows "too far"
'The X Factor' hopeful Lauren Platt says Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Simon Cowell "bicker" like brother and sister.
The 16-year-old semi-finalist claims the ITV talent show judges are constantly arguing like siblings both on and off screen.
She revealed: "Cheryl and Simon are just like brother and sister, all they do is bicker away at each other."
However, the blonde beauty insists the 'Crazy Stupid Love' hitmaker is holding her own against the 54-year-old music mogul and doesn't take "anything too seriously", even when their arguments get heated.
She said: "I have seen them both go too far with their banter but Cheryl doesn't take anything too seriously.
"She gives it to Simon just as much as he does to her, so it can work both ways."
Lauren - who is the only remaining girl in Cheryl's category - also confessed she has been inspired by the 31-year-old star's positive attitude.
She said: "She is such a strong person and her positivity has really rubbed off on me. "
Meanwhile, Lauren's fellow contestants Ben Haenow and Andrea Faustini have reportedly been banned from eating snacks such as chocolate and biscuits ahead of the final a week on Saturday.
A source shared: "They need to cut out biscuits and get to the gym.
"That isn't a suggestion, that's an order from the very top."
