X Factor’s Cher Lloyd booed at South Woodford club

Star left clubbers disappointed at brief showing

X FACTOR star Cher Lloyd caused a stir when she strutted into South Woodford last week.

Fresh from her success on the hit TV show, Cher, 17, performed three songs at Funky Mojoe in High Road on January 2.

The event attracted a number of The Only Way is Essex cast including love rat Mark Wright and best pal James Argent who posed for pictures.

But fans were left disappointed by the rapper, who sported a new red hairstyle, because of the length of her appearance.

Clubber Rachel Saunt, 23, of Empress Avenue, Woodford Green said: “Cher’s performance was brilliant and included some of her trademark rapping.

“But some people were annoyed she didn’t stay that long and there was some booing.”
