A WORCESTERSHIRE pop star has revealed the scary moment her 'beautiful' car's brakes failed while she was driving with her two children

X Factor star Cher Lloyd warned people to 'beware' after her Ford Ranger's brakes failed while she was with daughters Delilah-Rae, five, and Eliza Violet, eight months.

Cher Lloyd, from Malvern, shared the terrifying story with her 2.8 million Instagram followers.

She wrote: "This is my Ford Ranger.

"My brakes totally failed with no warning while driving with my baby and my 5yr old.

"Total engine failure due to the wet belt.

"To anyone who owns one or is thinking of buying one, BEWARE! 

"I’m counting my lucky stars that my family is safe.

"This beautiful vehicle however, has retired well before her time."

Ford responded to the Instagram post and said: "Hi Cher, we're sorry to hear this. Please send us a private message so we can gather the vehicle information and look into this further for you."

Fans and fellow celebrities shared their shock and well wishes with the Swagger Jagger singer.

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton shared a series of shocked faces while one fan wrote: "Sending so much love hugs and prayers I’m so sorry that happened I pray you all are okay".

Another fan shared a message saying: "Omg! As long as your all safe, that is the main thing" while another added: "Wow this is my worst nightmare. I’m so sorry and I’m so glad you and the girls are ok."

The singer and rapper attended the Chase School and Dyson Perrins CE Academy before going on to become a superstar almost overnight at the age of 16 after reaching the final of the talent show in 2010.

X Factor fans always credit her Turn My Swag On audition performance as one of the show's best.

At the start of the year, she gave fans a sneak peek at her audition song list and they begged her to perform another track.

Song titles were written on the CD. Some tracks on it include Telephone and Give It Me Right - Cher explaining they were the "songs I used to play in my bedroom, singing with a hairbrush".

Cher Lloyd married Craig Monk in November 2013.
