New Xtra Factor cost Sarah-Jane Crawford has spoken about just how 'sweet' Simon Cowell is.

She certainly knows how to keep her job!

Radio 1Xtra DJ Sarah-Jane replaces Caroline Flack on the ITV2 spin-off this year and said: "Simon is very sweet as a boss.

"He always gives me hugs but I try not to get my make up on his crisp white shirts!"

She added: "People come in and say 'I want to impress you Simon' and he loves it. The other judges just roll their eyes."

Speaking ahead of the new series, which starts on August 30, Sarah-Jane revealed how there is no rivalry at all between Cheryl Cole and Mel B, with the pair instead becoming BFFs.

"They are off giggling and having girlie chats all the time," she explained. "When I get in the dressing room, it feels like a girls night out."

However the relationship between Cheryl and Simon isn't quite as loving.

"Simon teases Cheryl to the point where she wants to throttle him. She's like 'Get him away from me, I want to swap seats!'" Sarah-Jane said.
