XFactor 2014 judge Cheryl Cole is having sleepless nights over the show and her acts.

It was another double elimination at the weekend as two of Cheryl's girls left in X Factor 2014 results with Stephanie Nala and Chloe Jasmine both booted out.

And Cheryl wasn't happy, declaring: "I'm gutted, honestly, I think you've lost the cool factor and someone who was very interesting and who hadn't given her all yet."

Speaking to the Daily star after the live show, Cheryl admitted that she was already getting stressed after just two weeks of live shows.

Still eight more to go yet, Chez...

When I did the audition process I sat in the chair and it was like nothing had changed.

"When I came to the live shows I thought I was mentally prepared but when the audience gets going and you’re in the adrenalin-fuelled bubble, your heart is pounding," Cheryl explained. “I’m like: ‘This is all my responsibility now’.

"I wasn’t ready for that feeling, it’s very intense because you have people’s dreams on the line and their feelings. I go home and I can’t sleep.”

Cheryl went on to reveal that she was having sleepless nights thanks to late night phone calls from Simon Cowell.

"Simon likes to call you at three in the morning," she said, "He’s there thinking about the show, about pyrotechnics and all that, he’s a perfectionist.”

The X Factor 2014 continues to air this weekend on ITV with Movies week, also featuring performances from OneRepublic and Ed Sheeran.
