X Factor's new judges Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw made sure to mark their first round of London auditions earlier today, by doing what our celebs do best... taking a selfie, of course!

Last week, Rita and Nick finally got to settle into their chairs as X Factor judges, kicking off the show's twelfth series in Manchester.

Now, the pair will join Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini as this year's hopefuls take to the stage at Wembley. Ticking London off their to-do list, Nick told fans on Instagram: "Here we go!"

In the Radio 1 DJ's photo he can be seen pulling a funny face, while a sultry Rita poses like a pro behind him. Sporting a dramatic smokey eye and a glossy lip, the 'Never Let You Down' singer managed to disguise her chosen outfit for the day, showing off just a hint of her getup's sequinned design.

If Rita's ensemble is anything like her first X Factor red carpet (remember those sassy thigh-high red boots?!), we've no doubt, once again, she'll be pulling out all the stops when it comes to her wardrobe.

She and Nick have joined The X Factor lineup this year as the talent competition's brand new judges. They have replaced Spice Girl Mel B and X Factor veteran Louis Walsh.

And by the sounds of things the pair have got off to a pretty good start. Rita had Cheryl pining after her, following her absence from Manchester's second set of auditions (Rita was working in Paris), and reports suggested Nick and Simon had instant onscreen chemistry.

Proving he's not afraid to tell the contestants exactly what they think, Grimmy came out with lines such as "I'd love to go on a night out with you but I never want to hear you sing again" and "Your girlfriend must love you if she thinks you can sing 'cos you really can't."

Today, the judging panel will get back to work in the search for this year's X Factor winner, eyeing up the talent that London has to offer.

They have been joined by new Xtra Factor hosts Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom who looked ready and raring to go behind-the-scenes. No doubt the pair were itching to get all the backstage gossip!

The same couldn't be said for X Factor host Olly Murs, however, as he was too busy shunning his hosting duties to try his hand at some camera work instead!

Proving he's not afraid to get stuck in, the 'Troublemaker' singer joked: "There's no 'i' in team!"

Olly will be flying solo today as his hosting partner Caroline Flack has been forced to miss the auditions due to her commitments with Love Island.

Tonight, Caroline will present the dating show's live final from Majorca and on her absence, she made sure to tell her onscreen husband Olly "not to forget about her".

His reply: "No chance Caz."

What a cutie!
