X FACTOR 2010: Cher Lloyd is now a hate figure. The Sun says she’s a VIOLENT BULLY ”. Can this be our Cher, the young lovely who is a dead ringer for Dot Cotton Team America action figure? Surely not?!

Poor Cher burdened with a name that to all the world looks like an abbreviated form of Cheryl. But Andrew Parker claims Cher is a merciless bully in her own right.

Just in the girls’ class alone there is a Dunaway, Romeo, Van Damme, Lord Olivier, Godot and plenty of Violet Elizabeth Botts.

(Although, apparently, short for Cheryl, but short for Chert, a fine-grained silica-rich microcrystalline, also-known-as ’Malvern Gold’.)

Says Ophelia (no nun herself):

I want people to hear the truth about what Cher was like. Everyone is making her sound like an angel but she caused me a lot of pain.”

The voice right? That singing?

“I’ve had problems ever since. I’m still trying to get over depression. I had counselling, I cried, I was self-harming. It’s not nice because I have the scars.”
