The X Factor was back with a bang at last night's press launch (27 August), but given the opportunity to snog, marry or avoid their fellow judges, who exactly would Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini pick?

Ahead of the X Factor's return to our screens this weekend (30th August), the star judges of the show brought the glamour and the PDAs to the X Factor press launch in London yesterday evening.

And when the judges took part in a little game of Snog, Marry, Avoid, Simon admitted he was quite tempted to marry Louis...

Cheryl, Simon, Mel and Louis make up the judging panel on this year's X Factor.

Minus Mel B as she was in the US to film America's Got Talent, Simon and Louis joined a very glamorous looking Cheryl on the red carpet to kick off The X Factor 2014.

Speaking to ITN's On Demand Entertainment, the judges revealed who they would like to snog, marry and avoid between them and host Dermot O'Leary even had his say on the fearsome foursome too.

Dermot looked deep in thought as he eventually opted to obviously avoid Simon and Louis, quickly following up that decision with snogging Spice Girl Mel and marrying Geordie sweetheart Cheryl.

Louis on the other hand didn't seem like he needed much time to think as he fired out his answers: "I'd snog Mel, I'd marry Simon and I'd avoid Cheryl."

Back on the panel after originally leaving the show in 2010, Cheryl seemed happy with two of her choices, but wasn't quite keen on her last...

She said: "Avoid Lulu... Marry Mel B... And who was the other person?..."

When reminded the last person left (and the person that would be snogged!) was Simon, the 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer quipped "Oh yeah" before pulling a face and swiftly moving on.

We bet the music mogul was loving that!

Next up was the big boss Simon and after finally understanding the concept - yes Simon you do have to pick one to snog, one to marry and one to avoid - and debating whether he should smooch or tie the knot with Cheryl or Mel, he finally made his choice.

Mel was picked for a snog, Cheryl was the lucky lady who Simon would wed and poor Louis was to be avoided again.

Although Simon nearly did have a change of heart when it came to his ol' Irish pal: "I'm almost tempted to say marry Louis actually!"

Well they definitely fight like a married couple, that's for sure!

The X Factor airs this Saturday 30 August on ITV.
