Watch Simon Cowell accidentally PUNCH Caitlyn Vanbeck on The X Factor

OUCH

Caitlyn Vanbeck found herself accidentally hit in the face by Simon Cowell on last night's X Factor.

The Xtra Factor brought attention to mishap as Caitlyn and the other girls rushed to mentor Simon to celebrate making it through to judges' houses.

Playing the clip on the Xtra Factor, Rylan Clark-Neal joked: "No win, no fee!"

And Matt Edmondson added: "Where there's blame there is a claim."

Meanwhile Caitlyn laughed it all off, after all she is through to judges' houses!

The 18 year-old student from Edinburgh, Scotland performed Andra Day's Rise Up to make the cut in Saturday evening's episode.

Louis Walsh told her: "Caitlyn, you’re my favourite singer so far. You’re the best performer, you were born to do one thing and that’s to sing”.

Sharon Osbourne added: “I just love you because you are so real. I love that about you”.

Nicole Scherzinger remarked: “Girl, I think you better take one of those seats home with you now. You moved me”.

And finally mentor Simon concluded: “I don’t think you’re aware how good you are. I don’t want to give you a chair, I want to give you a sofa!"

Caitlyn's joined in Simon Cowell's final six by Kayleigh Marie Morgan, Soheila Clifford, Gifty Louise Agyeman, Emily Middlemas and Olivia Garcia.

They'll fight it out for a spot in the live shows next weekend on ITV.

For now, The X Factor continues tonight at 7PM with the second half of the six chair challenge featuring the Overs and Groups
