Speaking to Grazia magazine, Katie revealed: "Cheryl and I didn’t have long chats – she would just advise me not to read the papers and say she had had a hard time too."
The 24-year old continued: "I don’t have her mobile number so I don’t know if we will keep in touch."
Despite not connecting with Cheryl, Katie did claim that she did get close to one judge…Louis Walsh.
Waissel admitted: "Louis was my absolute favourite. He gave me his mobile number and I’ll definitely keep in touch. He understood how awful it was for me to be painted in a way I could do nothing about."
