Rowland flirts with hunky hopeful

X Factor judge Kelly Rowland hit it off with a hunky contestant - and got him to show off his six-pack.

The US singer is seen flirting with wannabe Perry in Saturday's edition of the show as she gets carried away staring at his washboard stomach.

As the pair hit it off during the show, she tells him: "You're not supposed to be making me blush." The smoothie replies: "I have that effect and I haven't even lifted up my top yet."

After he flashes his buff frame, the panellist requests another glimpse, asking him: "Can you lift it up one more time? I just have to count."

But despite being impressed by his physique, Kelly is less keen on his voice.

"My darling, I must admit I love your abs a little bit more than your voice. It's going to be a no from me, but I am going to be dreaming about those abs," she flatters him. "I counted; it was all eight, just nice."

Judges of the show were more impressed by hopeful Johnny Robinson from Harrow.

Wearing a battered baseball cap and tracksuit top, the scruffy 45-year-old bemused the panel by telling them he wanted to be as big as Lady Gaga. But he instantly dazzled them with his performance of an Etta James song.

Judge Tulisa Contostavlos tells him: "Johnny you have got the shock factor."

On the show, Louis is also seen telling one performer he cannot figure out her gender. When the group Poetic Justice take to the stage, he tells one of them, called Lyndsey: "So you're a girl? I wasn't sure." Tulisa ticks him off by saying: "Louis, that is really offensive."
