Cheryl Cole received a bit of surprise this week at the X Factor auditions when a group of strippers decided to audition in Edinburgh.
But this wasn’t just any old novelty act. To celebrate her birthday, Simon Cowell arranged for the guys to serenade Cheryl with flowers and a cheeky strip tease show.
The group, known as Highland Fling, were left wearing only their tartan thongs as they danced around Cheryl.
An insider told The Sun: “Cheryl was hiding behind her hands. She looked so embarrassed.
“But the other judges thought it hilarious.”
Who knew Simon Cowell had a sense of humour, eh?
The scenes of Simon’s little prank will probably be shown on this year’s Xtra Factor which will be presented by Sarah Jane Crawford.
The X Factor will return in August on ITV.
