Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has responded to accusations that she mimed during her performance of her new single I Don't Care on The X Factor on Sunday evening.

As well as positive comments, Cheryl received a sarcastic one from a certain follower: "Do we get discount on your mimed performance you did on sat?'"

The pop star couldn't help but reply: "Aww bless you live performances are not included on albums I'm afraid.

The star's performance was high octane in comparison to the acoustic rendition she shared earlier in the week



"And I performed on Sunday! Don't mug yourself off on my page. It's not cute. Go teach some dance instead."

There was much debate on Twitter at the weekend over whether Cheryl mimed on X Factor.  The star performed her new track surrounded by backing dancers and wearing a plunging white cropped top and thigh-high boots.

A spokesperson for the programme confirmed the Geordie beauty was singing live but said she had prerecorded the performance earlier that day.

Cheryl, 31, has previously spoken about responding to social media critics. "I do. I have done! I've said I feel bad for you," she said.

"Actually out of 100 people there's maybe three or four that want to say something mean, but I feel bad for them or I click on their profile and that's enough for me."

Cheryl's live performance made a significant change to the acoustic rendition of the track that she shared on YouTube last week.

The black-and-white video shows the singer at work with accompaniment only from a piano and minimal backing singers, standing with a microphone and showing off her vocals beautifully.
