The star's recent weight loss led to her being called a "bag of bones" by critics, and even Simon Cowell waded in claiming Cheryl "eats loads".

Now Cheryl tells The Mirror: "No, I'm not anorexic. It all started with a girl on Instagram calling us a bag of bones.

"At the time I was thinking people are so quick to judge without thinking, 'Is there a reason why this person might be like that?'."

At the time, Cheryl posted an angry message on social media, explaining she had recently been through a lot, including losing her father-in-law.

She now adds: "Right now I feel like we are facing a lot of body issues in general - girls expected to have big booties, girls with thin legs - and it's impossible.

"It needs to slow down, or stop. It's highlighting body insecurities and it's not right.

"I work 12 to 14 hours a day. I don't even have time at the moment to exercise – and I don't need to either.

"It's nice that people are concerned, but, honestly there's no cause for concern. You can see I am completely and utterly well and happy."

Rent-a-gob Katie Hopkins recently joined the debate when she wrote in The Sun: "I may not be a big fan of chubsters. But little Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is so tinky-tiny I feel cold when I look at her.

"Cheryl, love, you need a good roast dinner and some thermals."

Something tells us Cheryl won't be losing any sleep about those comments though!
