X Factor 2014: Raign on being basically hated by Cheryl Cole


X Factor 2014 hopeful Raign has spoken out about her clashes with CHeryl Coe.

On Saturday night's show we saw Cheryl say no to Raign, to boos from the live audience.

Cheryl complained that Raign - real name Rachel Rabin - was "really annoying," adding: "I can't stand her. I couldn't work with her. There is no way. I'm allergic to her."

But with three yeses from the judges, Raign is through to the next stage.

Speaking about Cheryl's feedback and comments, Raign confessed she hadn't really known what went on until she watched her audition back on Saturday.

"I was focusing on my performance and you can't actually hear what the judges are saying while you're singing," she recalled. "You can barely see them too because you're really quite far away and the lights are on you."

But Raign said of Cheryl: "I would hope we could sit down and have a chat and get to know each other and hopefully she'll get to know more of my personality and it would be fine."

And she was quick to focus on the compliment Cheryl gave her on songwriting after singing original track Don't Let Me Go.

"At the end she was actually really positive with her feedback and I try to focus on the positive in situations," Raign said on This Morning earlier today.

Raign added: "I am confident but it was a new experience and I've learned when I have nervous energy I tend to overtalk the situation.

"That's one of the biggest things I've learned from watching back on TV. 'Rachel, stop talking, just sing!'"

The X Factor continues this Friday night on ITV.
