The Greatest Dancer judge Cheryl has once again hit out at reports of a 'feud' with fellow judge, Strictly Come Dancing's Oti Mabuse.

The former The X Factor judge said that the reports were nonsense and that it was typical of the tabloids to pit women against each other.

Cheryl told Metro that "it’s interesting, isn’t it? It’s 2019 and we’re still doing this to women and there’s not one conversation about Matthew [Morrison] being mentioned, with any sort of criticism or having a bitch fight, or Jordan [Banjo].

"It’s sexism and it’s systemic in our industry and it will take a while to unravel."

She says that she tries not to pay attention to reviews or press about her projects much nowadays, although she does keep an eye on what the fans she follows say to each other on Twitter.

She also referred to a recent tabloid report when asked what the biggest lie published about her is, stating: "I heard that I have corridors cleared so I can walk down them. I mean, it’s outrageous.

"I laughed, but I was like, 'surely people don’t believe that? People aren’t that stupid!' There’s a small minority but I don’t think people are easily swayed and they know me."

The star also teased that she may follow up divisive hand-licking anthem 'Love Made Me Do It' with more singles, but not necessarily an album.

The Greatest Dancer continues on Saturday (January 12) at 8.10pm.
