Cheryl has revealed that Simon Cowell made a rude comment just moment before see performed on X Factor back in 2009.
The singer revealed she had never been so nervous in her life as when she launched her solo career on the ITV show, belting hit Fight For This Love to the nation.
But Simon did little to ease her concerns just minutes before she stepped on stage, making a very spiky remark.
Speaking to the BBC, Cheryl recalled the incident, which occurred backstage before her performance.
"It was my first solo performance, on a show I was working on as a judge, and then, half an hour before I went on stage Simon [Cowell] said some dodgy things. Like, 'Remember Cheryl, you've done this to yourself," she said.
"I don't know if he was giving me something to fight against, like 'I'll prove you bitches wrong,' or if he was simply saying, 'I don't know why you put yourself through this.' I'll have to ask him.
"He's changed a lot since he's had a baby, so he might feel a bit bad these days."
As it turned out, the Geordie singer didn't need to worry, as her first solo hit debuted at number one in the UK and Ireland.
It also topped the Singles Charts in Norway, Hungary and Demark, and landed a BRIT award for Best British Single.
However, more recently her single Love Made Me Do It failed to take off as triumphantly, debuting at number 19 in the UK Singles Chart.
The hit, which was released in November last year, only stayed in the top 40 for week before dwindling.
Cheryl will be hoping for success like she achieved in 2009 with her new tune, Let You, which is out today.
