The X Factor is often seeing an array of guest judges popping up during its audition process, but we've bet it's never had one quite like Caroline Flack's pet cat Waffle before...

Yep, you heard correctly. Cazza took it upon herself to book in the next guest judge to grace the X Factor panel, and we're pretty sure Simon Cowell wouldn't have bet on it being the 35-year-old's furry friend.

Taking to Instagram during yesterday's Wembley auditions, Caroline shared a photo of herself cradling her cat, telling fans: "Waffy guest judge today."

Ok, so we're betting Waffle probably didn't get his own seat on the judging panel alongside Simon, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora, but according to Caroline, he did make his TV debut.

In another post, the starlet shared a snap of herself and Waffle backstage with Olly Murs and Xtra Factor's new presenting team Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom.

We wonder what he got up to with the gang? He'd be perfect for combating those pre-audition nerves with a cuddle, wouldn't he?

Alongside her photo, Caroline said: "Waffle makes his TV debut ..... BEST CAT EVER."

She sure is his biggest fan!

Smitten with Waffle, Caroline is often seen gushing about him on social media, especially if she is missing her cat away from home.

Her withdrawal symptoms were almost too much to handle when the TV presenter was in LA earlier this year, so Caroline had a paw tattoo inked behind her ear as a cute tribute to the little guy.

She wasn't the only one who took part in 'bring your pet to work day' as Rita Ora recently brought her beloved pet pooch Cher along to The X Factor too.

Lucky Cher actually did get to have a spin in a judge's chair while she was there, joining Rita on the panel while she watched this year's competition hopefuls.

All we need now is for Simon's pups Squiddly, Diddly and Freddy, as well as, Cheryl's pals Buster and Coco to make an appearance and we've got ourselves our very own 'Fluffy Factor' panel!

Now that we would LOVE to see!

When they haven't been busy fussing over their doggies, Caroline, Olly and the X Factor judges have been filming this year's auditions across the country. For the last week, the team have been searching for talent at London's Wembley Arena, with the final round taking place today.

And as the next stage of the talent show creeps closer, an excited Cheryl told fans: "By this time tonight we will have seen the winner of 2015 perform already!!"
