He told her: “Loved the song, hate the outfit. And I’ll tell you why I say that Megan.

“This isn’t whatever the Essex thing is, it is a different show and I think if you really are going to take this seriously and if this was a normal TV performance, I would say to you it’s so distracting.

Loved the song, hate the outfit.

“It reminds everyone of you being a reality star, which I know you want to move away from now. All I wanted to do was concentrate on the song and the song was beautiful.

“I’m just saying what I feel.”

Another wrote: “Megan McKenna, ma darling, you look amazing. Just ignore Simon’s unnecessary comments.”

A third added: “I decided to give #CelebrityXFactor a watch and straight as I turn it on. Simon is instantly judging a woman on her outfit than her vocals saying she needs to ‘take it seriously.’

“Simon Cowell couldn’t care less about artists having their own personality.”
