X Factor singer Stephanie Nala has been branded a 'hellish school bully'.
The 20-year-old has been accused of picking on a number of girls when she was in school at the Cheshunt’s Turnford School.
Stephanie Shaw, who met Steph when she was 14, said today: “She was the worst bully at our school.
“Steph made my life a living hell for four years."
She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “She’d say I was fat and threaten me. I went home crying again and again.
“I was terrified. She was known for starting fights.”
Fellow former pupil Sam Gritton branded Stephanie an "intimidating b***h".
She told the tabloid this morning: “Steph and her friend would follow me and my friend home, throwing stones and screaming insults and names like ‘goth’ and ‘lesbian’.
“She even taunted that I had sex with my brother."
A string of others also claimed to be victims of Steph's school year antics, including Chloe Smedley, Shannon Daly and Ella Baker.
A source source didn't exactly deny the claims.
They said: “Steph is completely devastated by these claims as she was so often the victim of bullying at school.
“She’s putting all this behind her and focusing on singing, which is what she loves.”
The X Factor continues tonight with the results, plus performances from Taylor Swift and Pharrell Williams.
