X Factor's Che Chesterman told to lose weight by producers

'The X Factor's Che Chesterman has been told to lose weight by producers after he was seen scoffing burgers and chips.

The talented contestant - who sailed through to the next round of the live shows following his stunning performance last weekend - has been told to ditch the greasy food and embark on an exercise regime to enhance his chances of success.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "A conversation took place between Che and the production team about how they might be able to help him lose weight.

"They suggested a few diet and exercise ideas that he could try out, and he seemed keen to take their advice on board."

However, rather than get disheartened by their apparent fat jibes, the 19-year-old star is keen to take on their advice.

The insider explained: "He's passionate about staying in the competition and is up for anything that might boost his appeal for the viewers' voting. But he was brilliant this week, and people really seem to be getting behind him, so at the moment he's definitely not in any trouble."

Meanwhile, Che, who is competing in Nick Grimshaw's boys category, will battle it out for a place in the next round this weekend (14.11.15) on ITV.
