X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has admitted that mentoring the girls' category is keeping her awake at night.

Worried that she'll make the wrong decisions for her remaining acts - Lauren Platt and Lola Saunders - Cheryl has revealed that picking their song choices has been giving her sleepless nights.

And if that's not enough, Simon Cowell has been calling her in the early hours!

Speaking to The Sun, Cheryl said: "I have been having sleepless nights about song choices - and Simon likes to call at 3am, I have no idea why but I guess he is thinking about the show and is thinking pyrotechnics."


We can't imagine that goes down too well with the Geordie singer!

Last weekend, Cheryl suffered a double blow as two of her girls were booted out of The X Factor during the second week of live shows.

Stephanie Nala failed to impress with her rendition of Blondie's 'Call Me' and was sent home after receiving the fewest public votes.

Shortly after, Chloe-Jasmine Whichello was voted out by the judges following her sing off with Louis Walsh's boyband, Stereo Kicks.

Following the results show, Cheryl took to Twitter to thank both Chloe and Stephanie. She tweeted: "@CHLOEJASMINEW @StephanieNala Thank you so much for being an absolute pleasure and sweethearts to work with. Love you both."

She now has just two acts left in the competition, Lauren, 17, and Lola, 20.

While Simon and Mel B still have all four of their acts left, Louis, like Cheryl, only has two, as Overload Generation and Blonde Electra were sent home in the very first week.

The X Factor continues this weekend (25-26 October) on ITV.
