Cheryl Cole 'Refusing To Apologise' To Wagner
After The X Factor contestant tried to burst into her dressing room...
After the 51-year old finished his The Beatlesmedley, the Geordie judge refused to give Wagner any constructive criticism, telling him: "This week you made some comments in the press about me coming from a council estate."
She continued: "I am very proud of my roots. If I was to give you any advice, it would be to say don’t focus on how lucky I am to be here, focus on how lucky you are to be here."
Wagner then told Cheryl "not to believe the press" and that his words were taken out of context and that he thinks she is "talented and beautiful" and a "role model."
However, despite Wagner's best efforts, the Simon Cowell wasn't happy with Cheryl's outburst, stating: "Simon has made it clear he doesn't think the judges should be attacking the contestants on the show in a personal way."
"You are supposed to comment on the performance and the singing, so he didn't like that Cheryl got personal. Things were tense after the show, Simon wasn't happy and let her know."
