Uh oh: Cher Lloyd poses for her mug shot in the new music video for Want U Back

Watch out any girl thinking of dating one of Cher Lloyd's ex-boyfriends ... she may stop at nothing to win him back.

The 18-year-old singer ends up arrested and posing for a mug shot in the new, re-worked music video for her latest single Want U Back after fighting her ex's affections.

The music video has been completely re-shot to appeal to an American audience as the X Factor alum makes her bid for Stateside stardom this month.

Bad girl: The signer is arrested in the new video, which has been completely re-shot for the American release of her latest single Want U Back

While the UK version of the video, released in January, takes place in Cher's bedroom, a movie theatre and in moving Polaroids, the new one is set in an American diner.

Cher storms the diner, where her former flame is dating the waitress.

Wearing a black striped midriff-baring T-shirt and leather skirt, the pop starlet sips on a strawberry milkshake and dances on the tabletops.

Playing up to her reputation as the bad girl brat from X Factor, Cher trips up her love rival before enticing her ex into throwing the milkshake over the girl.

She may have won her man, but Cher ends up arrested for the stunt after the spurned girl calls the police.

The singer doesn't regret her actions, smirking as she sits in the back of the police car in handcuffs, and pouting through her mug shot.

Want U Back: Cher lusts after the boy she dumped

The UK version of Want U Back featured vocals from X Factor USA contestant Astro.

While it had been reported that Cher was to re-record the track with rap vocals from Snoop Dogg, the video has debuted as a solo single with no collaboration.

Miss Lloyd travels to the US this month to get started on her assault on the US charts - following in the footsteps of her 2010 X Factor friends One Direction and Brit boy band The Wanted.

While Cher is set on breaking America, her former mentor Cheryl Cole - who has so far failed to crack that lucrative and coveted market - spoke of her disappointment in Lloyd's recent snide comments that she didn't sing live.

Cheryl told GQ: 'She's new. She needs to learn a lot. I went through hell to get her on that programme. Everyone says stuff at the beginning of their career that they will learn to regret.'

The Call My Name singer said it was 'disappointing' in light of how hard she fought her corner, musing: 'Maybe I didn't teach her as well as I thought I had.'
