X FACTOR judge CHERYL FERNANDEZ-VERSINI has had enough. In a very frank interview with ES Magazine, she’s aired her views about people commenting on her weight.

Weight comments upset Cheryl

She said: “I can take whatever they [the press] throw at me after 13 years — what worries me is what it’s doing to the younger generation. And some of the people writing this are women. There is no sisterhood.

“The body shaming has to stop. It’s bulls***. Something has to be done, changed, even if it’s done in law.”

IDRIS ELBA has laughed off James Bond author ANTHONY HOROWITZ’s criticism that he is “too street” too play 007.

The 60-year-old novelist, who wrote the new 007 book Trigger Mortis, has already apologised after he was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: “It’s not a colour issue... Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”

The Luther star has long been hotly tipped to take over from DANIEL CRAIG as the first black Bond in the spy movie franchise.

Idris posted a link to the headline, saying: “Always Keep Smiling! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the Street!”

Controversial star KATIE HOPKINS received a tattoo live on her TV show, If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World, despite having previously slated people with body art.

As one of the discussions on her TLC panel show, the subject was fiercely debated by celebrity guests KERRY KATONA and CALUM BEST. But in a surprising turn of events, Katie put her money where her mouth is and got a tattoo of her own, leaving her guests and studio audience gobsmacked.

But there’s a twist — and it comes with her choice of wording for the tattoo. The former Apprentice star has the last word. “Don’t Get a Tattoo” is what she has on her back.

LEWIS HAMILTON has spoken out for the first time about rumours he is dating RIHANNA.

The 30-year-old Formula 1 star was pictured dancing with the 27-year-old singer at the Crop Over festival in Barbados last month, sparking speculation they are an item.

But Lewis told E! News: “You know, I’ve known Ri for a long time. We’ve been friends for a while. We hang out every now and again.”

Good Morning Britain presenter SEAN FLETCHER’s latest task was a real labour of love as he was strapped to a machine that simulates childbirth.

Sean had pads attached to his stomach which replicate labour pains and contractions associated with giving birth.

As the machine pressure intensified, Sean looked visibly pained.

“That was really unpleasant,” he said after a ‘contraction’, adding “This is why I’m a man. It’s just the worst pain ever. To any blokes who don’t sympathise with their wives or partners, I’m serious, you need to.”

JUSTIN BIEBER has revealed the reason behind his emotional outburst at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The 21-year-old pop star, who started crying after performing his new single, What Do You Mean?, admitted he couldn’t resist welling up during the August 30 ceremony.

“It was so overwhelming,” he told JIMMY FALLON on The Tonight Show. “I missed some cues so I was a bit disappointed about that.”

“But just the support... I didn’t expect them to support me in the way they did,” he continued.

“Last time I was at an awards show, I was booed.”
