Cheryl Cole's all aglow at X Factor auditions in London
Simon Cowell may have had flashbacks to his axed TV show Red Or Black? when judges Cheryl Cole and Mel B turned up to X Factor auditions wearing the colours head to toe yesterday.
Cole chose a matching short-sleeved top and smart trousers in vibrant scarlet, while Mel opted for a black knee-length clingy dress as the heats reached London's Emirates Stadium. The panel are continuing to whittle down the entries at various locations after beginning their search earlier this week in Manchester.
Cole has returned to the panel after a four-year absence, while Spice Girl Mel is a new recruit although she has been a stand-in guest judge. They join regular Louis Walsh and Cowell, who returned to the panel after his hiatus judging X Factor in the US.
