Forget Taylor Swift’s gang - we want to hang out with Cheryl and the X Factor girls

It seems that any celeb worth their salt is in a ‘squad’ these days. From Niall Horan forming a bromance with Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson, to Taylor Swift’s never-ending gang of famous friends, everyone’s got a crew at the moment.

Taylor and her posse – which includes the likes of Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez and Lena Dunham – are facing some serious competition though when it comes to the best girl gang out there…

Yep, the X Factor girls are totally the hot new squad on the scene. Judges Cheryl and Rita Ora, along with presenter Caroline Flack, have made for a pretty gorgeous team at the show’s live auditions this week and look awesome together.

Caroline, 35, is clearly smitten with her new pals and shared a picture of the trio posing together on Instagram today.

‘❤️ these two …. @ritaora @cherylofficial,’ Flackers captioned the snap. X Factor love-in alert!

The photo was taken during auditions held in London on Sunday and shows the ladies all posing on the red carpet.

You know how Taylor’s group always look glam? Well there’s no denying that the X Factor girls are definitely a stylish bunch.

Cazza showed off her impressive pins in shorts and a navy shirt whilst Rita, 24, worked a daring crop top and baggy trousers combo.

Meanwhile Cheryl, 32, opted for a white blazer jacket and striking red heels. Who needs supermodels in a squad when you’ve got these girls?

Fans are definitely keen on the idea of Cheryl, Rita Ora and Caroline Flack becoming the latest celeb dream team. One admirer excitedly commented on Cazza’s picture: ‘SQUADD SQUAD SQUADD’

Another wrote: ‘Omg you are so beautiful all of you’

There’s clearly already a strong bond building between the X Factor crew. Earlier this week Caroline posted a shot of the judges and presenters all together and cutely added: ‘Just a family Sunday’

We just have one question Flackers – can we be in your squad please?

What Rita Ora really eats to get a body like THIS…
