Teenager Lauren, who was eliminated from X Factor during last night's semi-final results show, told ITV's Good Morning Britain that Cheryl was a very hands on mentor – even when the cameras stopped rolling.
"She had me round her house countless times this week preparing me for whatever way the show might have gone this weekend," said Lauren.
"We had Indian takeaway, we watched I'm A Celeb, had a massage…"
We wonder if Lauren was cheering on Jake Quickenden on I'm A Celeb?! After all, the singer had appeared on her series of X Factor before heading to the Australian jungle.
Lauren narrowly missed out on a place in the X Factor finals, losing in last night's sing off to Andrea Faustini.
Andrea will now battle Ben Haenow and Fleur East in the final.
Chatting to Sarah-Jane Crawford on Xtra Factor, Lauren said: "I have gone out to three of the most amazing people I've ever met in my life and I can hold my hands up and say I'm happy with that."
As for keeping in touch with Cheryl, she revealed: "After the show, I said, 'Stay in touch, yeah.' She went, 'Don't even say that!' We will. [Her husband] JB has already invited me round for dinner tomorrow!"
