Pics just released from the set of the in Edinburgh earlier this week - filming fell on Cheryl's 31st birthday - reveal our cover star covering her face as a troupe of strippers stream into the audition room to entertain her.
Cheryl's response? To join in with some moves of her own and graciously thank Simon with a kiss on the cheek afterwards.
