Cheryl Fernandez-Versini talks X Factor scent

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has confirmed her perfume of choice for The X Factor is her own creation.

The svelte singer was in London last night to unveil her latest fragrance, StormFlower Noir. The elegant evening scent adds to her StormFlower collection, which she first released last year.

Asked if she'll be spritzing herself with Noir during the live shows, Cheryl showed her loyalty to the brand.

"Of course!" she beamed exclusively to Cover Media.

Cheryl stunned in the British capital, wearing a black jumpsuit showing of her slim figure. The outfit had added wow in the form of a dramatic gold collar, reminiscent of multiple gold bead necklaces piled on top of one another.

The female X Factor judges are known for competing in the style stakes at the weekly live shows, and this year Cheryl will be pitted against Rita Ora. Giving a hint at what one of her outfits may be, the 32-year-old advised fans on what to wear her perfume with.

"A little black dress," she smiled. "Lots of perfume, seductive. It's sexy, it's sensual and it's very wearable."

It's not all good news on the X Factor front though, with former winner Sam Bailey calling out Simon Cowell for favouring last year's runner up Fleur East over winner Ben Haenow.

“I felt sorry for Ben on the X Factor tour. Fleur opened the show and had amazing outfits, pyrotechnics, dancers and big performances. Then Ben went on at the end and it was an anti-climax. It’s obvious they are pushing Fleur to be the star.

"Simon can see where the money is going to come from and will make sure Fleur is the next big thing," she sighed to British newspaper The Sun.

She's also voiced her doubts on Rita's credentials to mentor this year's hopefuls.

"It’s not that I don’t like Rita, I just don’t think she has enough experience to tell me what I already know.

“Rita hasn’t been on the pub circuit, she went to drama school and was groomed to be famous before she left," Sam said.
