Cher Lloyd 'In Tears' At Cheryl's Judges Home
As the final 12 move into a £3.5 million mansion...
Cher is left to battle it out on Saturday's show against fellow contestants Gamu Nhengu, Kate Waissel and the remaining five girls for a place in Cheryl's top three.
Essex painter and decorator Matt Cardle has since replaced Cher as the favourite to take home the XF title, after he blew the judges away with his performances at Boot Camp.
Meanwhile, neighbours of the latest batch of XF finalists are reportedly 'living in fear' as the final 12 contestants move into their new home for the next few weeks.
The final 12, whose identities are yet to be revealed, have already moved into the £3.5 million property ahead of the live shows which are set commence on 9th October, with residents nearby apparently 'less than happy' with the rowdy bunch.
The XF wannabes neighbours are allegedly worried that their once tranquil neighbourhood will become chaotic when fans from all over the country descend upon the North London cul-de-sac to catch a glimpse of their idols.
A source told the Daily Mail: "The residents are upset as there is already some disruption with camera crews coming and going – and the live shows have not even started yet"
"This is a very exclusive and private road and people are worried that fans will swarm the close once they find out the finalists are here."
Another resident added: "People around here won't stand for that, I can tell you. We’re not that impressed that the X Factor is on our doorstep."
