And if Simon is saying it, it must be true.

X Factor head honcho Simon Cowell is the latest amongst the showbiz crowd to throw his oar into the burgeoning relationship between show judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and One Direction's Liam Payne, telling the Sun that the pair were like "two little chipmunks madly in love". Excuse us while we go find something to wash down the bile.

"I saw them together and we had a really nice dinner. They were on good form. They’re like two little chipmunks madly in love. Literally, they were so cute," Cowell told the paper, adding "But importantly they both seemed very happy over here and very relaxed. I'm happy for them."

That's Simon's stamp of approval then.

As far as we were aware the only thing chipmunks love is food but we guess there are exceptions.

So what are the odds that Liam will pop up on the judge's panel for this year's X Factor? Very likely if you ask us. This has a Simon Cowell funk all over it.
