This year’s X Factor series has been controversial for a number of reasons. First of all, multiple ‘fix’ claims have been made following the inclusion of contestants with large singing careers already behind them.

Second, the competitor Honey G has somehow made it through to the live finals, outraging numerous viewers.

Now, judge Simon Cowell has been accused of flashing his penis on the show after an image from the show went viral thanks to the likes of David Walliams sharing it online.

In the photo, Cowell is seen sitting in-between Spice Girls Emma Bunton and Mel B, dark shades on, leg upon the sofa. As noted by some viewers, his toe resting between his crotch looks like a penis.

Thankfully, Cowell was quick to address the situation. He explained on the Xtra Factor: “Before anything else I want to clear up toe-gate. It was just my toe. It was quite embarrassing when I saw it online but it was just my toe. I have a very large toe.”

Glad that’s all cleared up. Meanwhile, the drama continues as fans are threatening to boycott the show because of Honey G. The world we live in.
