And it doesn't look like it's calming down anytime soon either.

Uh oh! It seems all is not well at camp X Factor so far this year, but never fear it's still all bants.

Appaz Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is bickering with Simon Cowell and "because he knows how to push her buttons" she wants to move seats away from him on the judging panel. But he won't let her.

The former Girls Aloud singer, who returned to the ITV talent show last year, told The Sun: "Me and Simon are still rowing. He knows which buttons to press. Sometimes I want to move away from him but he won't let us change seats."


"He just really wants to wind me up to get a response. I don't think I'll throw glasses of water on him - I think those days are done. Maybe I'll use a high heel? That can double up as a weapon, can't it?" she continued.

Chezza went on to say that in comparison to last year, this time round it's more "banter than bickering".

And soz Chezza, but it's probably not going to stop anytime soon.

Simon told the newspaper: "The one thing about Cheryl is that she's so easy to wind up that I can't stop myself, because it makes me laugh."

The pair, including fellow judges Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw, plus Olly Murs and Caroline Flack appear in the X Factor teaser trailer:

The teaser is set to debut on ITV tonight.

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!
