Just six days after she publicly retaliated to the name-calling and backlash surrounding her weight, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has received more negative comments about her figure when she stepped out in Manchester displaying her svelte physique for the second round of this year's X Factor auditions.

On 3 July, the former Girls Aloud member took to her personal Instagram account to fight back against people saying she was "too skinny" and looked like "a bag of bones," stating: "I would never dream of calling somebody too fat and that they should maybe cut down on their food intake? What's the difference?

"You have no idea what I have been through," the Crazy Stupid Love singer continued. "Just losing my father in law very recently and everything that comes with that. Not that I am or should justify myself to anyone.

"I'm so sick of people thinking it's OK to be mean or body shame anyone. And it's woman on woman. Have some respect and maybe think there may be reasons why before opening your mouth please.

"I am just tired of the ignorance. At some point it's just enough. Some people are naturally thin. My mother is all of 4'11'' and six stone something. And is incredible healthy and happy," the 32-year-old concluded.

But despite Versini's recent plea in an attempt to discourage the haters from critiquing her size, it seems as if she's become the target of backlash again as fans worry about how she is looking.

Attending the auditions wearing black flared trousers paired with a revealing crop top, you could quite clearly see her toned abs and slim arms, which prompted people to take to Twitter to share their opinion on the pop artist's new look, whilst some wrote comments on her Facebook page and Instagram account, alternatively.

Many of them suggested that she "needs to eat" and described how she looks "ill".

Other people chose to take an alternative approach to the comments and reports about Versini being too skinny, suggesting that people should stop "skinny shaming" the I Don't Care hitmaker, labelling it just as harmful as if you were to call someone who is overweight "fat."
