Kym Marsh has criticised Cheryl Cole’s controversial decision to sit on the fence and said “a judge’s job is to judge”.

Kym Marsh says Cheryl Cole should have voted on The X Factor on Sunday night

The Coronation Street star, who rose to fame through a forerunner of The X Factor, said Cheryl “should have voted”.

Cheryl’s refusal to vote cost contestant Treyc Cohen a place on the show and saved Katie Waissel who was less popular with viewers. If she had voted for Treyc, the decision would have been thrown over to the votes of viewers.

Kym said: “I do think she should have voted. It could potentially have changed the whole outcome, and fans of Treyc are probably fuming.

“You can see why people are annoyed. I do believe she should have chosen because if you’re going to be a judge your job is to judge. Whether that’s your own acts or someone else’s, in my opinion that’s what she should have done.”

Cheryl said she did not want be forced to choose between Katie and Treyc, who had finished in the bottom two and were both acts for whom she had been mentor.

Kym said it was clear that Katie was proving unpopular with viewers as she had finished in the bottom two on three occasions.

“They should be listening to the people. It’s obvious the people will keep putting her in the bottom two. Next week she’ll probably be in the bottom two again. It’s obvious the people don’t want to see her in the final.”

Kym was speaking as she backed the Childnet International campaign for safe and responsible internet use. The charity has produced a leaflet to help parents at childnet.com/downloading

Treyc Cohen has made a controversial exit from The X Factor. The 26-year-old found herself in the bottom two alongside fellow sing-off veteran Katie Waissel.

Their mentor Cheryl Cole refused to choose between her acts.

After Simon Cowell opted to keep Katie, Cheryl made it clear that she would send the competition into deadlock, depending on how Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh voted.

However, the Girls Aloud singer didn’t get her chance because presenter Dermot O’Leary said they’d go with the majority vote; Dannii Minogue voted to send Katie home and Louis Walsh picked Treyc to go.

Treyc had attempted to save herself with Toni Braxton’s Unbreak My Heart, while Katie opted for soul classic Don’t Give Up On Me by Solomon Burke. She did it – Katie survived again.

It was [supposed to be] American Anthems week on The X Factor, but once again the judges, by and large, didn’t get the message. Compositions such as Kids In America, sung by Brit pop star Kim Wilde and written by her brother Ricky and father Marty, made it into the show.

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole went another round in their bickering. The music mogul aimed a couple of barbed comments in Cheryl’s direction as he critiqued her acts.

While commenting on Cher Lloyd, he said: “I think your mentor got a little bit lazy.” Take a look through the gallery to see how each act fared in another very dramatic weekend of The X Factor.
