Things are getting icy between the judges

Forget the X FactorStrictly war, Saturday’s show is all about the war between the judges – Simon Cowell, Nick Grimshaw, Rita Ora and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

But it’s what you could call a Cold War – because ice cream is the main weapon of attack.

It all kicks off when ice sales man/singing hopeful Andy Taylor dishes up some of his best stuff for the judges, trying to sweeten them up, (we hope you gave Si two scoops, Andy).

And because the judges are obviously all respectable adults who know how to behave, it wasn’t long before the whole thing turned into a food fight.

All the judges got involved, but Rita came out worse with not one, but two cones to the face.

Meanwhile, Andy sings Walk The Moon’s* Shut Up and Dance*, probably worried that the four people who hold his destiny in their hands have stopped watching him in order to fling ice cream at one another.

Chezza's loving her retro '60s vibes during the auditions so far, and her cute Miu Miu shift and matching pink heels look gorge on her

Cheryl's Adam Lippes tuxedo dress may cost over £1k, but that's nothing compared to a lifetime of dry cleaning bills. Just beware of Nando's, eh Chez?

B*Witched would be soooo jealous of these denim co-ords. Rita continues to show off her risky fash sense on the red carpet

Poor Rita must've accidentally got stuck in a door or been attacked by a pack of dogs on the way to the auditions. We can think of no other possible explanation for that missing sleeve

Caz doesn't half love a boyish short and shirt combo. She picked up these snakey platforms for just £52 from Toppers!
