The X Factor judge, whose thin frame has sparked a lot of discussion online, has spoken out once again about her weight loss insisting she is "happy and healthy".


In a new interview with the Evening Standard Magazine, the I Don't Care singer revealed she has had enough of body-shaming.

She said: "Body shaming has to stop. It’s bulls***. Something has to be done, changed, even if it’s done in law.

"I am very happy and very healthy. Every woman has a different body type and handles stress and grief differently."

The singer has received online backlash following weight loss. 

The songstress admitted to the publication that she has cut back on her gym sessions as her ballet training days mean she can get muscular quite quickly because of muscle memory.

She revealed that because of this dance training she can look like a "tennis player" when she works out.


Concerns were first raised when the first photos of the London X Factor auditions emerged, causing the singer to defend herself on Instagram.

Images of Cheryl at the X Factor auditions sparked concern. 

At the time she wrote: "I am so sick and tired of it being okay to call somebody too thin or a ‘bag of bones'. I would never dream of calling somebody too fat and that they should maybe cut down on their food intake?

"What is the difference? Have some respect and maybe think there may be reasons why before opening your mouth please."
