Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has condemned Labour’s plans for a mansion tax

Pop star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has revealed she is considering switching support from Labour as she said the party’s mansion tax would “f*** her over”.

The X-Factor judge said that now she is a mature woman paying a “f****** lot of tax” she feels a greater responsibility to be well-informed about politics.

Fernandez-Versini also talked of the “big downsides that come with having money” in the interview with the Telegraph’s Stella magazine.

She is the latest multi-millionaire celebrity to criticise Labour’s plans to impose an extra levy on homes worth more than £ 2 million.

Presenter Myleene Klass attacked Labour leader Ed Miliband over the policy, claiming it would hit ”little grannies” whose homes had increased in value over decades, rather than the super rich.

Actress Angelina Jolie said she could be “put off’ from moving to Britain by the proposal, which would come in this year if Labour wins on May 7.

Fernandez-Versini singer said the mansion tax proposal would “f*** her over” and she would “listen” more carefully to other parties.

She also suggested she could “make my own party” adding that “s tranger things have happened”.

“It’s hard for me, because all my friends and family vote Labour,” she said.

Asked if she would consider voting for David Cameron, she replied: “Not really. I want to hear what everyone’s got to say.

“I’ve always been Labour all my life but I want to hear what they’ve got to say for myself. Now that I’m a mature woman.

“I feel like a greater responsibility now to vote for who runs our country. And I pay a f****** lot of tax. So I think that I need to have a really well-informed, well-educated opinion.”

She added: “There are big downsides that come with having money. As many as with not having money. I mean, they’re different types of stresses, but they’re both stresses.”
