Cher Lloyd doesn't have a close bond with Cheryl Cole any more
The 18-year-old was often referred to as a Cheryl ‘mini-me’ during her time on the talent show, but the pair’s busy careers appear to have got in the way of their bond.
‘I’ve got more chance of winning the lottery than catching up with [Cheryl],’ Cher, 18, told James Merritt on BRMB.
‘I haven’t spoken to Cheryl since the show. Maybe she’s been busy – and I’ve been busy, too.
‘People assume you’re going to be best buddies but it doesn’t work like that.’
But while Cheryl, 28, has been busy trying to launch her career in the US, Cher has kept in touch with Mary Byrne, 51, who finished 5th on The X Factor last year.
‘We text all the time,’ she tells the Sunday Mirror.
‘She gives me advice and we talk about lots of personal stuff.
‘She’s been a good friend to me.’
