Channel 4's T4 On The Beach takes place this Sunday in Weston-Super-Mare and Cher Lloyd, will be performing her debut single Swagger Jagger live for the first time at the event, has made some bizarre requests. The 17-year-old diva's rider reported includes demands for turtles and pigeons in her dressing room - as long as they don't "poop" everywhere.
The beachside one day festival will also see acts including former X Factor stars JLS and Olly Murs, as well as Cheryl Cole's girls aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts, perform new material.
Cher's rider reportedly asks for dressing to be "a little area with a pink curtain around it and lots of animals, like turtles."
Cher says: "I really like pigeons at the moment but don’t know whether you can keep them in one area – and I think they poop a lot."
Her demands also include no kiwi fruit but welcome "other fruit and a Pot Noodle".
The news comes as Cher asks people to give her a break following the negative reception to her debut single. The youngster made the plea as her Swagger Jagger flopped with viewers after its release last week.
Meanwhile, perhaps, hoping to do some damage limitation, it's been claimed that the 17-year-old has been working on the staging for her T4 On The Beach set by herself, making sure very part of her first live TV performance since last year's X Factor is perfect.
A source told The Mirror last month: "Cher has already been putting loads of work into the show – it’ll be her biggest to date without the rest of the X Factor contestants. She is taking it really seriously and wants to be involved in all aspects of the production.”
T4 On The Beach airs this Sunday live on Channel 4 and 4Music.
