Simon Cowell got his own back on Cheryl this week, according to the Sun newspaper Simon took a swipe at Cheryl’s ‘diva’ demands by liquidising her sushi lunch.
The blended fish mix was then presented by Simon to Cheryl during a break at the auditions in Manchester on Tuesday.
But sources behind the scenes say that Chezza “wasn’t impressed”.
Despite the gag, Cheryl and Simon’s fellow X Factor judge Louis Walsh has insisted that the new judging line up are getting along swimmingly so far.
Despite the fun and games off camera, Louis said earlier this week “It’s all going great. We’re going to get the fun back in the show,” he explained. “Simon is on top form and the talent is all good, with all new faces.”
Auditions continue in London, Newcastle and Edinburgh before moving on to the second stage in front of an audience next month.
