Cher Lloyd suffered at the hands of bullies growing up due to her traveller background, her uncle has said. The X Factor contestant lived in a caravan for a year from the age of four months, her uncle Jessy Smith has told the Mirror, before moving in with her grandparents in Malvern.

"The caravan had a toilet, shower and gas cooker. They set off around Wales, parking at the roadside for a week at a time around Swansea, Brecon and Merthyr Tydfil," Jessy explained. "It was hard for them. They had very little money and travellers were not accepted. At times Cher's had to put up with kids calling her 'gypo' and 'pikey'.

"She knows where she's from and accepts it. Cher must be one in a million," he added. "You never see a traveller doing well on TV, let alone become a popstar. All you hear about travellers is that they leave litter, go out robbing and start fights."
