Cheryl Cole's return to the X Factor was marred slightly by a couple who reportedly got caught having sex in the bushes at the house that was being used for Gary Barlow's judges' houses round.
Believing that they would have enough privacy to do the deed, the red-faced couple were in for a shock when they were discovered just as Gary was deciding who to take through to the next round of the competition.
It is believed the couple's discovery was a result of security fears that shutterbugs had got access onto the grounds and were going to picture the 'Under The Sun' hitmaker arriving at the stunning location.

Recalling the embarrassing incident, a source told The Sun: "Security expected some bloke with a camera and were stunned when it turned out to be two young lovers in their 20s.
“The pair looked as shocked as our security staff and quickly stopped what they were doing and pulled their clothes back on.”
The insider also added: “They made their excuses and left. It seems they’d been having a picnic and got carried away.”
