Cheryl Cole has upset former X Factor contestant Katie Waissel with some comments she made about her in her autobiography, 'Cheryl: My Story'.

The Girls Aloud star described Katie as "good TV" in her new book, saying: "Simon [Cowell] had spent the past two years drumming into me that we needed acts who would be 'good TV'. When I saw Katie perform this time [at Judges' Houses], I had to admit that she was… quirky, intriguing and busting to succeed."

She added: "In short, she had the character and drive it took to withstand the pressure of the show, and so I put her through, even though she messed up when she sang in front of Will."

Katie has responded to the remarks via her Twitter page, saying: "@cherylcole thought you were better than this. Shame I trusted you. you live and you learn." Ouchy. Cheryl also fell out with her other X Factor contestant from 2010, Cher Lloyd, when Cher said she would only duet with Cheryl if Auto-Tune was used to help the singer.

Uh-oh. Over to you, Cheryl… RM
