There was an X Factor bootcamp proposal at the weekend when one contestant popped the question during their audition.

Hopeful Sam Black got down on one knee in front of not only the judges but also the HUGE live audience at Wembley Arena.


No wonder nerves slightly got the better of him as Sam put the ring on the wrong finger.

Simon Cowell quipped: “I’m no expert at this but you’ve just put the ring on the wrong hand!”

An audience member told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Sam was at the end of his audition when he made the move and called Emma out from the audience.

“It was a great moment and Simon gave the couple a big thumbs up and all the judges were cheering.”

While the proposal was successful, whether or not Sam's audition got a yes from the judges remains to be seen.

Meanwhile there have been rumours of another X Factor romance between Nicole Scherzinger and a contestant.


Simon Cowell wound up Nicole saying: “We have a budding X Factor romance. It’s never happened before between a judge and a contestant.

“It’s Nicole and I can predict a wedding in 12 months.”

Following the bootcamp stages last week, the six chair challenge films this week.

The 2017 X Factor six chair challenge will take place at the SSE Arena, Wembley on Wednesday, July 26, (Afternoon) Thursday July 27 (Afternoon and Evening) and Friday, July 28 (Afternoon).
