Katie Waissel as taken aim at Cheryl in an X Factor themed rant on Celebrity Big Brother.

Katie is one of fifteen all star Celebrity Big Brother housemates currently living in the house for the Channel 5 show.

In tonight's latest highlights, Marnie Simpson questioned Katie on her time on The X Factor and THAT row with former mentor Cheryl.

Katie explained how it all begun after Cheryl allegedly said she only put her through to the live shows 'to make good TV' and 'because Simon Cowell told her to'.

Chatting in the CBB bedroom, Katie said she found the comments 'mean' and had no regrets about speaking up against the 'Nation's Sweetheart'.

"I don't mind staying true to myself and standing up for myself," Katie told the housemates. "I think, 'Why should I back down if someone's being mean about me?', 'Why should I take it?'"

Katie went on: "It doesn't matter if it was Cheryl or the guy down the street."

Speaking about her time on the show itself, Katie said of competing in the X Factor's live finals: "I pooped my pants every week."

The singer, who now lives in America, shocked the housemates by revealing: "I legit had death threats, I had stuff thrown at me in the street and there was nothing I could do to change it other than go out on Saturday nights and sing."

However Katie concluded: "It's made me who I am today."

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
