X Factor’s Nick Grimshaw CHUCKED AN ICE-CREAM at Simon Cowell – and it took 90 minutes to clean him up!

Nick Grimshaw accidentally caused X Factor filming to be delayed for an hour and a half after throwing an ice-cream at Simon Cowell.

Speaking about the incident on the red carpet afterwards, the new judge grinned as he described the satisfying way his 99 sailed through the air and stuck itself to the side of Simon’s neck.

More news!

“I got him right in the face. Like, really lobbed a full 99 in his face. It was really projected, and I’ve never seen Cheryl [Fernadez-Versini] look so happy!

“She was like, ‘YES!’, it was so much fun. I think Simon started it, to be fair.”

Grimmy also talked about where the Judges’ Houses segment of the show might be filmed, suggesting his childhood home in Oldham “with me mam ironing in the background”.

Super-slim Chez rocked a 60s vibe in scalloped Red Valentino, Mary-Janes and a bouffy beehive.

Caroline Flack

Fresh from crowning Max and Jess winners of Love Island Caz Flack got her (very good) legs out in a leather mini and hipster Bella Freud knit. We love this hair style on Flack, so fun.

How babe-in did Rochelle look in her orange suede Victoria Beckham dress? Expertly styled- up with a skinny black belt and strappies. Our fave.

A loud Versace mini with sequins and pointy stilettos gave Rita a totally 80s feel. That sleek high pony works, too.
