Cheryl wows in sheer red jumpsuit as she confidently returns to stage to perform single

Cheryl confidentlty returned to the stage to perform her new single on The Graham Norton Show after dividing fans with her controversial X Factor performance.

The singer, 35, pulled out all the stops in a glamorous red jumpsuit that featured a daring sheer neckline and was adorned with sequins.

She finished off the sizzling look with a sleek high ponytail and large silver hoop earrings.

As well as performing comeback track Love Made Me Do It, Cheryl also joined Ruth Wilson, Steve Carell, Dawn French, Michael B Jordan on the sofa to chat with host Graham.

The Geordie star was all smiles despite enduring a difficult few weeks after the new track failed to set the charts alight like her previous hits.

An insider has claimed that she feels “humiliated” by criticism of her recent X Factor performance.

"Cheryl is humiliated," a source told Closer magazine .

"She’s a proud person and is defiant about everything she does, which is why she tweeted her thoughts."

"She’s a strong woman, but there’s only so much fight she’s got in her – the negativity is a bitter pill for her to swallow, and it makes her so angry.

"She was once the nation’s sweetheart and could do no wrong, but she can’t get back to that time.

The recent criticism apparently touched a nerve.

"She was expecting for people to say it was an ‘amazing comeback’ but they haven’t and it’s got to her," they went on.

"She feels desperate about what to do next – she doesn’t know whether to fight back with a new track or give up on music for a while."

Love Made Me Do It, which was co-written by old Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts, has only been picking up 59,000 Spotify streams a day – earning it a somewhat unimpressive number 136 spot on the UK Spotify chart.

That’s only 150 streams ahead of Justin Bieber’s Christmas ballad Mistletoe. Which came out in 2011.

By contrast former squeeze Liam Payne – who Love Made Me Do It is categorically not about –is collecting an average of 130,000 streams a day and sitting at an altogether more impressive number 38 in Spotify’s ranking.

Cheryl and Liam split in July after two years together and now share custody of their one-year-old son Bear.
