Cheryl Cole expected better of Cher Lloyd
Cheryl Cole's fiercely loyal to her friends, but those who cross her are off her Christmas card list for ever - as her X Factor protégée Cher Lloyd, 18, is finding out.

The Swagger Jagger singer slammed her former mentor during an interview on Real Radio in March, joking that Cheryl couldn't sing live and saying she was 'sad' not to have heard from her since she was on the 2010 series.

But in a new interview with We Love Pop magazine, Cheryl says:

'After the show I got a lovely, heartfelt text message from Rebecca Ferguson and a lovely message from Treyc Cohen, but I didn't hear a thing from Cher.

'There was no "thank you".  So you don't contact me, but you want me to run around after you?

'It's disappointing she's felt the need to be bitchy, but that's up to her.'

We hope you're listening Cher... And Cheryl, we're so pleased that you're back to your feisty best.

Don't ever leave us again!
