Gary Barlow's judges' houses section of The X Factor had to stop filming after a couple were caught having sex in the grounds of the stately home!
Gary had invited Girls Aloud star and former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole to the 16th-century stately Boughton House in Northamptonshire to help pick his finalists.
According to The Sun, bosses had to stop filming after the noisy pair were caught going at it in the bushes “without a care in the world”.
Security had just expected to find some nosy press photographers when they were sent to investigate the disturbance!
A source told the tabloid today: “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 supposed insider added: “They made their excuses and left. It seems they’d been having a picnic and got carried away.”
The X Factor 2012 judges' houses is shaping to be one of the best yet, with the judges flying out to top locations including Dubai, St Lucia and Las Vegas.
As well as Cheryl, helpers have included Sharon Osbourne, Ne-Yo and Tinie Tempah.
The judges' houses section will air on ITV1 in two weeks' time.
