Jess, who appeared alongside Cheryl on The X Factor when she was chosen as a guest at Judges' Houses, said Twitter especially can be a place where "people love to make a bad comment".

Speaking to Jess at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Awards 2015 with Baileys, she told Reveal: "You know what, it's f*cking grim to have people saying that stuff to you. Cheryl is healthy and if she wasn't healthy, you'd know about it."

Jess, who won an award for Ultimate Solo Artist, continued: "Yes, she's slim, she's beautiful and she's fine. If there was anything wrong with that woman, you would know about it, and she would know about it.

"For people to make comments, it's just pathetic really."
