Cheryl sparks rumours she will be on Strictly after disastrous X Factor performance

Despite her disastrous X Factor performance on Sunday, it looks like Cheryl could be about to get back on stage once more.

The 33-year-old singer sparked rumours after Lauren Steadman shared a snap of Cheryl in between her and pro AJ Pritchard.

Lauren shared the picture of the three of them grinning on Instagram, writing: "Cheeky Selfie in Training @aj11ace @cherylofficial #awesome #dancetraining."

Will Cheryl perform tomorrow night?

This comes after Cheryl hit out at criticism following her performance, which she labelled "shocking and relentless abuse".

Her raunchy stage show – which saw her lick her own hand and crawl suggestively across the stage – was dubbed too x-rated for a family show by some fans.

Others took aim at her singing, with some accusing her of being "out of tune" during her energetic routine.

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

Cheryl took aim at the ‘haters’ and said that her music and performances are "never going to be for everyone".

She added: "I let a lot of things lie but the sheer level of unbalanced negativity towards me in the tabloid press these past few days has been quite frankly shocking and I need to address it.

"This level of relentless abuse should not be tolerated in any walk of life."
