Notice anything funny about this picture of Simon Cowell on ‘The X Factor’?

Well, you’re not the only ones. 


The show boss caused hilarity among viewers during Saturday (1 October) night’s episode, after he was the victim of an unfortunate opticall illusion. 

Basically, people though ‘Little Simon’ had popped out to say hello. 

But nobody was happier about it than Simon’s fellow ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge David Walliams.

However, we’re pleased (and also very relieved) to confirm it is his toe - look hard enough and you’ll work it out too. 

During Saturday’s show, Simon was seen deciding which of his seven Girls to send through to the live shows at his Judges’ Houses. 

After being assisted by Spice Girls Emma Bunton and Mel B at his home in Malibu, he eventually settled on Gifty Louise, Emily Middlemas and Samantha Lavery.

As a result, it was bad news for Soheila Clifford, Kayleigh Marie Morgan, Caitlyn Vanbeck and Olivia Garcia, who were all sent home. 

Louis Walsh also picked his top three Groups, choosing to put through Bradley and Ottavio, The Brooks and 5AM. 

Sunday night’s show will see Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne select their finalists as Judges’ Houses continues at 7.30pm on ITV.
