X Factor 2014 video: Cheryl claims only she takes the show seriously!

The X Factor is back this weekend and Cheryl Cole reckons only she is taking the new series seriously.

The Crazy Stupid Love singer was in London today for the show's official press launch and claimed that the other judges - Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Mel B - were "full of mischief".

Chezza on the other hand, keeps her fun making backstage and away from the acts!

"They're all full of mischief, I'm focusing solely on the contestants," Cheryl proudly declared. "I'm not mischievous, unless it's backstage!"

Meanwhile, Cheryl admitted that being back in the rooms this year has seen the return of a lot more wacky acts and she finds the whole thing rather "sad".

"There are still people who come in and believe they can be the next big thing. It's kind of sad..." she said.

Cheryl confessed: "It's sad, but I guess that's where we get our laughs from which is a bit cruel but true."

Watch Cheryl talk The X Factor series eleven above!

The X Factor starts this weekend on ITV from 9PM.
