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