The X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd is reportedly ‘obsessed’ with her mentor, Cheryl Cole.
Lloyd, who was selected by the Girls Aloud star to be in her final three girls despite her poor audition at Judges’ Houses, has previously been compared to Chezza, but sources have claimed that the resemblance between the two is no coincidence.
The 17-year old already has a similar tattoo to the Promise This singer on her hand and is also said to have styled her hair like Cheryl, with insiders claiming her obsession with Cole is ‘freaky.’
A source told Now magazine: “When the other girls asked Cher how she stays so thin she told them she eats for her body type. The Eat Right 4 Your Type diet is something Cheryl once swore by.”
“What freaked everyone out was when she admitted she had a tattoo inked on her hand after seeing Cheryl’s.”
They added: “She plays it down, but she’s kind of obsessed with her.”
Meanwhile, fans of the teenager are reportedly worried that Cher may quit the show after fears that she will not be able to cope with the stress of the looming live finals.
According to the Daily Star, many viewers are concerned about Lloyd’s ‘anorexic’ appearance, with fears that she might collapse or pull out of the show.
Cher’s idol, mentor Cheryl, is also said to have expressed her concerns for the singer, after reportedly being ‘shocked’ by her ‘pale and thin appearance’ at her Judges’ House.
A cameraman told the tabloid: “When she came down the stairs to sing, Cheryl’s face said it all. She said: ‘Wow!’ but not in a good way. Everyone was pretty shocked at just how tiny and frail Cher looked.”
