Updated: 

X Factor viewers had more fun watching Simon Cowell than the audition, as contestant Fay Horne ambushed him with her flirting.

The bubbly blonde only had eyes for Simon as she tried out, and at one point she was giggling so much she couldn't even sing.

Simon, no stranger to a female fan, claimed to be feeling uncomfortable - but on Twitter fans thought he looked as if he was loving the attention.

So Faye has won Simon over, and viewers also loved her soulful voice.

But one thing people aren't buying? That's she's 24.
