X Factor star Cher Lloyd unrecognisable in glam transformation 12 years after ITV fame

Cher Lloyd looks worlds away from her X Factor audition in her latest glamorous selfies.

The singer, 29, propelled to fame when she first took to the stage 12 years ago to sing in front of the judges.

Sporting ultra thin drawn on eyebrows, ripped cargo trousers a then 16-year-old Cher impressed the panel with her confident performance.

And no more than a decade on, fans have been begging for the songstress to return back to the music scene as she shared her latest snap.

Cher’s transformation is clear to see, with the X Factor now sporting a bushier eyebrow look. Styling her brunette hair in soft waves and sporting a bronzed make-up look, Cher flashed a grin at the camera.

Fans took to the comment section to gush over her glam makeover.

One wrote: “so prettyyy !! I love you Cher… supporting you always!!”, while another added: “Hello Cher are we getting new music and album”.

A third follower chimed: “You look insane!! “

Cher finished in fourth place on X Factor and kicked off her career with single Swagger Jagger. Her debut album was called Sticks and Stones.

She has previously admitted she wasn’t a fan favourite when she reached the final of the talent show.

“I was a beast! Everyone hated me,” Cher told Fabulous magazine back in 2012.

“I was young and foolish. Part of me was trying to show I was strong enough to do it, and then I think it all got too much for me.

“I was angry with the way I was being edited and because of that I turned into this horrible person, with a terrible attitude.”

Cher was eliminated in the first round of the finals and ended up clashing with mentor Cheryl after she accused her of abandoning her.

“I didn’t have her mobile number to begin with. I’ve got more chance of winning the lottery than catching up with her,” she said on the release of her hit single, Swagger Jagger.

And asked if she’d do a duet with Cheryl, Cher hit back with a barb about using autotune and challenged her mentor to sing live with her.

Cheryl was raging and tweeted: “Be Careful who you kick on your way up .. They kick you twice as hard on your way back down.. #unappreciationisugly.”

The pair later made it up, Tweeting each other messages of congratulations on their wedding days.

Cher married London hairdresser Craig Monk in 2013 and the couple share daughter Delilah-Rae.
