There was once a time when Cheryl Cole was considered the golden girl of The X Factor, with the singer enjoying a successful spell on the show during her first run. So, when it was announced that Cheryl was returning to The X Factor, it was expected that fans would once again warm to the beautiful judge.
However, it seems that Cheryl Cole has found herself in a bit of a battle with fellow judge Mel B, for The X Factor judge that fans hate the most, as they both continue to get very negative feedback from viewers. The comments that Mel B and Cheryl have been giving to contestants have been the main reason that fans and viewers have turned on them.
One Mel B hater ranted, "She started out telling people straight and being honest but now she just seems to want to get a reaction from the crowd or from the other judges. I don't see the point in that and it really annoys me." Meanwhile, a Cheryl Cole hater added, "Cheryl is just in it for herself, she doesn't care about any of the acts, she just wants to be able to say that SHE won."
The X Factor continues this weekend on ITV1, with the live show airing on Saturday night and the results show coming on Sunday evening. It will be interesting to see what comments Mel B and Cheryl Cole give contestants this week and how the public responds to them.
What do you think of the judging panel on The X Factor this year, so far?
