Sinitta calls Simon Cowell “rude” for allegedly offering Cheryl an X Factor role instead of her

She was on Lorraine this morning

Sinitta went on Lorraine this morning and decided to have her say about Simon Cowell, and those Celebrity Big Brother rumours.

She claimed to be confused over whether she will be invited as a judge on this year’s X Factor and said she has a video of Simon inviting her back during the last time she was on the show.

Referencing the allegations that Cheryl was being offered a whopping £500,000 to come back on The X Factor (an allegation that Simon denies), Sinitta said to Lorraine Kelly: “I read recently that he invited Cheryl back… Rude, just rude! Hopefully he’s just being funny.”

It’s not just The X Factor that Sinitta is struggling to get on at the moment, as she has had a bit of back and forth with the bosses of Celebrity Big Brother who invited her on the show but have now axed her.

Although it was confirmed last month that the 53-year-old had been signed up for this year’s Celebrity Big Brother, this week the Daily Star reported that she had been axed due to her ‘ridiculous’ list of demands.

The show’s bosses have refused to accommodate her slightly outlandish requests. A source from the show told The Daily Star: “We were thrilled to get Sinitta on board as she is a laugh and could let slip some embarrassing secret about Simon Cowell.

“But her demands were the most ridiculous we’ve ever seen.”

So what exactly were these ‘ridiculous’ demands? We hear you ask. We’ll let Sinitta explain.

She told OK! Magazine: “I’ve given them my rider, but there have been complaints.

“I just asked for a few things that would make it nice because they’ve asked me every year and I’ve always said no. But if these things could happen, then I could do it.

“I want a swearing ban, because I don’t swear and people shouldn’t be allowed to swear at me or around me. I asked for a bodyguard who would stand with me at all times, especially when I’m asleep. If they provide alcohol then I want tequila because it’s all I drink. Quite reasonable, really.

“The producer said it’s the most ridiculous rider they’d ever had. It has gone a bit quiet, I must admit. But if you don’t ask, you don’t get!”
