X Factor: Rebecca Ferguson hasn't spoken to Cheryl Cole since the show

Rebecca Ferguson

Former X Factor finalist Rebecca Ferguson has revealed she's not herd from mentor Cheryl Cole since the show finished in 2010.

After Dannii Minogue said this week she was still in touch with all of her acts, Rebecca has claimed it's not the same for Cheryl.

The Liverpudlian singer bitched: "Are Girl's Aloud doing a tour? I didn't realise. I haven't seen or spoken to Cheryl since X Factor."

Speaking to the Daily Mail today, Rebecca also gave her thoughts on this year's line up.

She said: "I love Jahmene. He has overcome so much and he is a real hard worker.

"I also love Ella Henderson, she is so talented yet only sixteen; imagine what she will be like when she is twenty."

Rebecca, who returned to The X Factor last month to perform her new song Backtrack, has recently been working on a charity campaign to get parents reading to their children.

She explained: "I am currently working with Encouraging Kids to Read at Home campaign which I am really passionate about. I can't believe that nine per cent of parents read for their children for less than ten minutes a day.

"My best memories from childhood were story time so I make sure to tell my children stories. I make up a funny tale called the Ladybird Soup which they love."
