Cheryl Fernandez-Versini: 'I'm not anorexic'

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has rubbished claims she's anorexic.

The 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer has come under fire recently for her tiny frame and although she's previously admitted the death of her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini's father was partly to blame for her weight, she's now insisted she's perfectly fine.

She said: "No, I'm not anorexic.

"It all started with a girl on Instagram calling us a bag of bones.

"At the time I was thinking people are so quick to judge without thinking, 'Is there a reason why this person might be like that?'"

The 32-year-old star recognises she's not alone in being criticised for her figure and has called for body shaming to stop.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Right now I feel like we are facing a lot of body issues in general - girls expected to have big booties, girls with thin legs - and it's impossible.

"It needs to slow down, or stop. It's highlighting body insecurities and it's not right.

"I work 12 to 14 hours a day. I don't even have time at the moment to exercise - and I don't need to either.

"It's nice that people are concerned, but, honestly there's no cause for concern.

"You can see I am completely and utterly well and happy."
