Simon Cowell has given his verdict on the ‘X Factor’ finalists, and Chloe Jasmine probably won’t be too pleased when she hears the music mogul’s comments.

Despite praising the singer during the audition stages, Simon has now slammed Chloe, stating that he doesn’t think she’ll cut it in the competition.

Speaking to The Sun, Simon explains: “I don’t think she will go too far in the contest, if I’m honest.

“I just don’t think the audience will warm to her. She is a sweet girl but ditzy.”

Since her first audition, Chloe has divided opinions and while the judges have praised her, a number of viewers have disliked the singer, criticising her posh accent.

Ahead of her first attempt at impressing the judges, Chloe was described as a “fashion model” and she previously appeared on the reality TV show ‘The Face’.

However, it hasn’t all been smooth-sailing for the singer and earlier this week, it was revealed that snaps from one of her x-rated, NSFW shoots are still viewable online.

Cheryl's decision to keep Chloe in the competition was also called into question by viewers, who complained when the judge swapped the singer into her final six at the last minute.

Tonight (Saturday 11 October) the live shows begin, and Chloe will be up against hopefuls including Blonde Electra and male singer Andrea. Four wildcard choices will also be revealed.
