Grace Woodward says X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd is emotional

Cher Lloyd gets ‘special’ treatment on The X Factor, according to the show’s stylist.

Grace Woodward says the rapper, 17, is very fragile; so the crew try to be as sensitive to her needs as they possibly can.

‘Let’s just say Cher has to be treated with kid gloves,’ she tells Radio Times.

‘She’s a special case and needs special handling and [mentor] Cheryl Cole is getting very involved with her. 

‘She suffered stage fright, so what’s worked for her one minute doesn’t work the next.’

On Saturday’s X Factor, teary-eyed Cher started to cry after singing Shakespeare’s Sister track Stay.

She also broke down at the judges’ homes stage and burst into tears backstage on the first live show because she wasn’t happy with her outfit.
