Cheryl asked her fans to caption an amusing snap of X Factor judge Simon Cowell holding oranges over his nipples

The X Factor auditions are in full swing and the judges are clearly having a lot of fun along the way.

Cheryl, 32, had her Instagram followers in stitches yesterday when she posted a funny photo of Simon Cowell suggestively holding two small oranges on his chest to look like his nipples. Um, okay…

To be honest it kind of left us lost for words but Chezza wanted someone to come up with an amusing slogan for the snap.

‘Caption this..,’ Ms Fernandez-Versini wrote alongside the picture.

The singer’s fans didn’t let her down and submitted some hilarious responses to the request.

‘Orange u glad ur sitting next to me HAHAHAHAHA let’s be honest that was so good,’ one joker suggested.

Another commented: ”I miss Amanda’ (Holden) 😉 lol’

Personally we liked the orange-related puns many followers opted for, including this one: ‘the best segment of the show’

Funny captions aside, we’d love to know exactly what Simon, 55, was doing with those satsumas!

It’s great to see the X Factor crew having lots of fun in-between auditions. The judges – including new additions Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw – have been keeping us entertained by documenting their amusing antics on Instagram and Twitter.

Just a few days ago Chezza made us giggle when she shared a picture of Grimmy stretching his legs over his head (you really have to see it for that to make sense), with presenters Caroline Flack and Olly Murs chuckling away by his side.

‘#BTS #currently #xfauditions @nicholasgrimshaw @flackcaroline @ollymurs,’ Cheryl captioned the shot.

All that fun teamed with long hours on set seems to have taken it out of the Geordie star though.

Cheryl posed for a pouty picture with her eyes shut late last night and joked that she was definitely ready for bed.

‘#Mood #asleep on my feet #xfauditions,’ the busy star told her followers. Bless!
