X Factor judge Simon Cowell forgets Zain Malik when put on spot by Dannii Minogue

Simon Cowell still doesn’t know who the individual members of his X Factor group One Direction are.

The judge was asked to name all the boys – Zain Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan – by Dannii Minogue after he accused her of not spending enough time with her acts. 

Niall, Louis, Harry, Liam and Olly,’ Simon, 51, said on The Xtra Factor

But he was left red-faced when it was pointed out that he’d left out Zain, 17, and there’s no Olly in One Direction

‘Erm…Zain, Harry, Liam… you are confusing me now,’ he added.

The studio audience heavily booed Simon for the gaffe.
