Perrie Edwards has told Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's critics to ''f**k off.''

The Little Mix singer, 22, thinks the 'X Factor' judge is ''just wonderful to look at'' and can't believe she has come under fire for her slender frame.

Asked about the body-shaming the former Girls Aloud singer has been subjected to in recent months, the blonde beauty said: ''I love Cheryl, she's incredible.

''She's just wonderful to look at, isn't she? Do y'know what I say to those bodyshamers? F**k off and leave my Chezza alone.''

Cheryl, 32, previously rubbished claims she's anorexic and admitted the death of her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini's father was partly to blame for her weight loss, but insisted she is fine now.

Perrie's bandmate Jesy Nelson claims they understand what Cheryl is going through because they have all faced the same kind of scrutiny when it comes to their figures.

She told Yahoo! Celebrity: ''We just try to forget about any nasty comments really. We like to eat food and so does everybody else, and if we put on weight we put on weight and if we lose weight we lose weight.

''Everybody has this preconception that you're supposed to be perfect looking but nobody is perfect.''
