Simon Cowell got a little hot under the collar when Russian glamour puss Irina Dedyuk sang 'Simply The Best' to him at The X Factor 2016 auditions!

Irina instantly made an impression when she pulled up in a swanky black car and revealed she'd flown over from Los Angeles to try out for the ITV show.

The full-time singer and model said: "I wanna live on stage, sleep on stage. I'm very, very soulful!"

And it seemed a certain Simon Cowell was the reason why she made the 5,000-mile journey. "Oh my God, he is hot!" she exclaimed. "I'm gonna grab all his energy, stare in to his eyes... he won't have a choice!

"I will try my best to make Simon like my voice, and I'm pretty insistent. He is a king, he can rule the world!"

Irina aptly chose Tina Turner's 'Simply The Best' for her audition song, and walked up to the judges' desk in a bid to seduce Simon.

When Louis Walsh pushed for his review, the distracted media mogul simply said: "Yes!"

A few chuckles later, he elaborated: "There are some slight issues on the vocals, but come on, you obviously want this. I love this kind of ambition, taking the moment... you're slightly scary, but I like that."

"You remind me of a baddie from a James Bond movie!" added Sharon Osbourne.

Irina won four yesses, earning her a spot at Bootcamp - and proclaimed in the pod: "Judges, you have seen nothing yet."

Meanwhile, Sharon laughed: "Oh my God, she's got more front than Selfridges!"

Irina wasn't the only person vying for Simon's attention on tonight's show, with hopeful Matt Terry's NAN declaring herself the new "Mrs Cowell"!
