On Saturday night, X Factor fans had quite a surprise as they were watching the show. Simon Cowell’s appearance blew up Twitter when due to his position on the couch, his toe resembled an intimate body part. On This Morning, the Monday edition, Rylan Clark-Neal , who is an Xtra factor star and a close friend of Cowell’s, declared that they talked about this incident in order to clear things up for everybody.
He said that Simon talked to them and said that it was just his toe. Simon declared that it was indeed unfortunate and embarrassing but that he wanted to clear up the “toe gate” as he called it. He jokingly added that indeed, his toe is really big.
Phillip Schofield said on the show that it’s “not really” that big. He added that he planned to recreate the pose himself after the show. Rylan said that he didn’t even know about this wardrobe malfunction until he was updated by his co-star in the Xtra Factor show, Matt Edmondson. He declared that Matt asked him if he noticed something strange about Simon’s appearance in the show and then told him about the issue.
The thing we know for sure is that the Internet went crazy on Saturday night after the head judge appeared to be too indecent for the competition. While he was in the judges’ houses stage of the show, he was listening to the contestants while sitting down on the couch next to Mel B and Emma Bunton. He had one leg folded up against the other, thus leaving the toe to be seen as getting out of his knee.
Many people took to Twitter to express their surprise and to joke about this unfortunate incident. What is true is the fact that this has triggered many decent or indecent jokes, but now that Simon cleared it up, this should no longer be such an interesting topic.
