Caroline is still embarrassed by her first meeting with The X Factor boss

Caroline Flack got a bit lost on her first visit to Simon Cowell’s LA home and mistook his address.

The presenter, 33, pitched up at the luxury residence she believed belonged to Simon, 53 – who she used to fancy like mad – and found herself on his neighbour’s sofa instead.

‘I turned up at his mansion, rang the doorbell and someone made me a cup of tea,’ she recalls.

‘After ten minutes, the guy came back and asked me what I was doing there. I said I had come to see Simon.

‘I was in the wrong house! He was Simon’s neighbour.

‘It was so embarrassing and meant I was late, but the good thing was that it broke the ice because I was terrified of meeting him.’

Whilst her mistake may have helped to ease her anxiety, Caroline admits she isn’t often in touch with The X Factor boss.

‘I don’t hear much from him,’ she tells The Sun.

‘He doesn’t call up and tell you what to do.’
