Cheryl Fernandez-Versini Hits Back At Troll Who Body Shamed Her On Instagram

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is certainly never one to hold back, and the ‘X Factor’ judge has brilliantly hit out at comments about her size, after being body shamed on Instagram.


The star was angered by a so-called fan who branded her a “bag of bones” on a picture of her being whisked away to Italy by husband Jean-Bernard on her birthday, and sensationally cut them down to size in a furious rant on the photo sharing site.

She wrote: “I am so sick and tired of it being ok to call somebody too thin or a ‘bag of bones’.

“I would never dream of calling somebody too fat and that they shouold maybe cut down on their food intake? What is the difference?

“You have no idea what I have been through. Just losing my father in law v recently and everything that comes with that.

“Not that I am or should justify myself to anyone.”

“I’m so f sick of people thinking it’s ok to be mean or body shame anyone. And it’s woman on woman. Have some respect and maybe think there may be reasons why before opening your mouth please.”

She added: “I am just tired of the ignorance...At some point it’s just enough. Some people are naturally thin. My mother is all of 4’11 and six stone something. And is incredibly healthy and happy.”

Cheryl celebrated her 32nd birthday over the weekend, and her husband surprised her by taking her to Italy for dinner during a holiday together.

She shared a picture of their romantic meal on Instagram, writing: “When you’re asked what you would like to have for your birthday dinner and you say lets go to a nice Italian restaurant!... Then you actually end up IN Italy. I need to step up my game. I’m feeling very lucky and grateful #sobeautiful.”

The singer is currently gearing up for her return to ‘The X Factor’, which begins filming auditions on Monday.

This year, she will be joined on the panel by Simon Cowell, Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora, following a raft of changes on the ITV talent show.
