The X Factor judges arrived at Wembley Stadium for the latest round of auditions.

Newly wed Cheryl Versini Fernandez was the first to arrive at the prestigious venue.

The 31-year-old singer took time out to speak to waiting fans who congratulated her on her recent nuptials.

Having married French club owner Jean Bernard in a secret wedding the singer had much to smile about as she's also celebrating a number one record with Crazy Stupid Love.

Looking effortlessly stunning in a mint cloqué floating peplum top and skirt from Philip Lim, Cheryl made sure to speak to fans on both sides of the red carpet.

Simon Cowell basked in the attention from the crowd. Commenting on Cheryl's surprise wedding he said: "Cheryl is the happiest I have ever seen her. Her new husband is a great guy." .

The Girls Aloud singer was joined by Mel B, who stood out in a striking hot pink dress. The former Spice Girl jetted into the UK from New York City, where she was a guest on US talk show The View.

Cowell was quick to praise the new judge who replaces former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.

"Mel B is a total star," he said. "She flew in from New York last night. No sleep. And totally on it. She is a revelation."

Also making an entrance was new Xtra Factor presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford.

The 29-year-old replaces Caroline Flack on the ITV2 show, after Flack quit the popular spin off programme.

Presenter of The X Factor Dermot O'Leary gamely posed for photos with fans before joining the judges.

It's hoped the return of Cowell and Cheryl and the addition of the feisty Mel B will contribute to boosting flagging viewing figures when the new series of The X Factor returns.
