Cher Lloyd spoke to heat radio at the Isle of Wight Festival and revealed she has taken up....knitting.

She said, "I've recently taken up knitting. I knit scarves and blankets but that's as far as I'm at as the patterns are confusing me. I knit, I watch Eastenders and do my knitting - it's relaxing."

She also talked about what she has been up to on her two year hiatus saying, "I've been away two years and I'm a new person. I packed my bag for two weeks but have come back two years later. I realised I had a lot of growing up to do, and it's the best thing I could have done. I needed to do a lot of growing up...I was a brat when I was on the X Factor. I was a teenager with all those hormones going on but I was doing it in front of millions."

She went onto say, "Everyone had an opinion... I've even annoyed myself. I'm back and I'm better now."

She also revealed her single is out on the same day as her X Factor mentor Cheryl Cole. She said, "I didn't realise it was out on the same day. She was my X Factor mentor! I cannot think of a better person to ask for advice now we are back. We're not in touch but I would like to speak to her. We had an amazing experience together, I hope she feels the same".

She also said she is happy Simon Cowell & Cheryl Cole are back together, saying, "I'm so happy they are back together on the X Factor. Finally a judging panel I want to watch."

Although she went onto say, "I cannot believe it...I've been away two years and I come back and Simon has had a baby! What's going on Simon?! I would love to meet up with him. Not over dinner though, that's too formal. That's not me. Despite the rumours...I'm still signed to Syco".
