Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has called for an end to body shaming, suggesting it should be illegal to publicly criticise anyone for the way they look.

The X Factor judge also denied accusations she has an eating disorder, saying she was shocked by the claims.

In an interview with the London Evening Standard, she said:

I can take whatever they throw at me after 13 years, what worries me is what it’s doing to the younger generation. And some of the people writing this stuff are women. There is no sisterhood.

The body-shaming has to stop. Something has to be done, changed, even if it’s done in law.

When I work out, I can look like a tennis player. If I don’t, I look different.

I am very happy and very healthy.

Every woman has a different body type and handles stress and grief differently."
