Cheryl ‘wanted male dancers to have BUMS out’ in bizarre X Factor performance

Cheryl made her long-awaited return to the X Factor last night to perform her comeback single Love Made Me Do It.

But she’s been copping serious amounts of flack for it, with viewers accusing the racy routine of being far too x-rated for a family show.

As well as crawling suggestively across the stage, at one point she licked the back of her hand in bizarre scenes that had everyone talking.

And according to reports, the saucy performance could have been even more racy with The Sun claiming she wanted the male dancers to have their bare bums out.

“At one point there were fears the male dancers may even have their bums showing but now it seems they will be more covered up," a source told the newspaper before the performance.

Mirror Online has contacted Cheryl’s team for comment.

It wasn’t just Cheryl’s writhing that came under fire, with the star also being slammed for her singing.

"Not sure if it’s the sound or she just can’t sing, but this sounds bad," one sniped.

"This is actually s***… Why did she lick her hand at the start there…"

"Cheryl licking her hand tattoo is about as appealing as this performance/song," added another.

A third said: "I just don’t understand? Cheryl? Can she even sing? … bizzaare"
