Amanda Holden has said she disagrees with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's opinion that body shaming should be monitored by law.

X Factor judge Cheryl said in a recent interview she's fed up with people being criticised over their body shape, adding: "The body-shaming has to stop. It's b*******. Something has to be done, changed, even if it's done in law."

But speaking to MailOnline, Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda, 44, questioned that view and the problems of enforcing it legally.

She opined: "It's a little stupid to say it should be illegal. Because where does it end? When you're in the public eye, you have to take the good with the bad."

In the same interview, Amanda did praise Cheryl's performance on X Factor, saying she brings "sexy" to the show.

Cheryl, 32, has been vocal about body shaming in recent weeks, after being the subject of much criticism herself from people who think she is too slim.

She told InStyle: "It's crazy double standards. You'd never be allowed to say to somebody, 'Oh, you look a bit fat.' And being overweight is unhealthy – it's actually a bad message to tell someone who is obese that they look "curvy" or "great".

"But you know what? After this length of time, there's nothing I can hear about myself that I haven't already heard."
