Despite playfully brushing the hopefuls comments off, Cheryl put all her support behind the London four-piece last month as she took toTwitter to publicly give them her vote of confidence on this year’s X Factor.
The 34-year-old – who appeared on the series between 2008 and 2015 as a judge – helped the music mogul pick the four groups to bring through to the live shows when she was met with the flirty contestant in France.
Having supported her beau Liam Payne on Saturday’s instalment, she watched the show from the comfort of her own home and weighed in with her prediction.

She wrote to her 6.38 million followers: ‘Just saw last nights Xf !! Rak-suuuuuuuuuuu come thru boys! Yessss! Obsessed’.
While she also commented on the Stormzy and Labrinth performance, sharing: ‘Stormzy & Labrinth. Goosebumps! What a beautiful performance’.
While admitting she was ‘obsessed’ with the group, the comment will no doubt set tongues wagging after she was forced to rebuff advances from flirty hopeful Miles.

In their VT before the audition, Rak-Su were heard playfully teasing their band member Myles for his huge crush on Cheryl.
So, it is no wonder Miles could not resist the chance to flirt with Cheryl after their performance – although his advances were immediately rejected, in a rare PDA towards boyfriend Liam Payne.
Heading back to the villa after their audition, Simon called out to him: ‘You like her don’t you!’, at which the heartthrob turned to point at Cheryl, and give her a cheeky wink.

Laughing the moment off however, the Girls Aloud star simply affirmed her love for Liam, 24, was stronger than ever by stating: ‘I’m taken, sorry!’
Yet, Simon went on to joke about Cheryl’s first meeting with the One Direction hunk, which took place on the same ITV show back in 2008.
He added teasingly: ‘Trust me guys, on this show, anything could happen!’, leaving Cheryl and the band in laughter.
The comments come as her beau Liam took the X Factor stage on Saturday to warn he is ‘keeping an eye’ on Rak-Su star Myles, who admitted during Judges’ Houses he had a crush on Cheryl – with Liam saying: ‘Obviously he fancies my missus so I’ve got to watch out for him’.

Cheryl looked sensational in a sexy black look, with her tresses styled in loose waves while her sparkling peepers were enhanced with smoky eye make-up.
As she sat on the sidelines during the show, she proudly watched on as Liam performed his track before he rushed off stage to embrace her.
Smiling broadly, it was plain to see the pride in her face as she gleefully clapped for her boyfriend, with whom she shares baby son Bear.
Liam has been dating the Messy Little Raindrops singer, 34, for just under two years with the couple sharing seven-month-old son Bear.
The X Factor returned for the first live show, without an injured Simon Cowell on Saturday.
