Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has rushed to the defence of Chloe Jasmine, following the first ‘X Factor’ live shows over the weekend.

MORE ‘X FACTOR’:

While Chloe impressed with her jazz rendition of Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ in Saturday night’s show, a number of viewers weren’t too happy with her brief appearances in Sunday’s results show.

Chloe’s efforts in the group performance left viewers less than impressed and there were plenty of tweets slamming the singer.

“The group performances on X factor are so uncomfortable to watch, always looks like no one knows their lines cough Chloe jasmine,” wrote one fan, while another added: “Pretty sure Chloe jasmine was singing off key today in the x factor opening group singing bit.”

However, during an appearance on ‘The Xtra Factor’, Cheryl urged fans not to be too quick in criticising the singer.

“Chloe is actually very misunderstood” she said. “She's actually very vulnerable. She's very vulnerable and soft on the inside. It's a bit of a front you see sometimes.

"I worked with her a lot this week on getting up there and enjoying herself.

“She's won a place here and she should stand up there like she deserves it."

Since first appearing in this year’s show, Chloe has been at the centre of a number of controversies, beginning with the revelation that she actually auditioned in 2006 - when her accent wasn’t quite the same.

The panel also faced allegations of fixing when it was revealed Chloe had been given a second chance at two of the audition stages.

However, despite the controversies Chloe sailed through the first weekend of live shows - along with the rest of Cheryl’s girls - while Louis Walsh lost two of his acts.
