The viewer, James, had phoned in to ask the judging panel a question, but appeared via video link lying on his kitchen counter in just a silk dressing gown while drinking a glass of wine. And it seems at one stage, the dressing gown may have opened up slightly as Nicole, Simon Cowell and co just didn't know where to look!
James had asked Louis Walsh what the best thing about being on The X Factor has been and after Louis wrapped up his answer (he said it was this year's panel), Rylan commented on James' outfit choice and asked: "Are you a bit nippy?"
Matt Edmonson then joked that James was "revealing as much leg" as Nicole had done previously with her daring dresses on The X Factor, and worried there was the potential for James to show off more than expected, Nicole added: "Let's get a little tuckage situation going just to make sure..."
At that point James moved his leg and appeared to accidentally flash for the judges, although we will point out the camera was focusing on the panel at the time, not James, so we can't be too sure.
Nicole was left open-mouthed, while Sharon Osbourne quipped: "I missed it."
Simon didn't look too impressed and host Rylan questioned: "Did you see anything there?" before swiftly moving on.
The mishap didn't go unnoticed by viewers, though, and many took to Twitter to comment on James' unfortunate appearance on the show. One fan commented: "Wtf have i just seen on the #xtrafactor?" Another joked: "Xtra Factor should be PG."

Just when you think X Factor could not get any trashier, a man on Skype on Xtra Factor flashes his bits— Ash ✌ (@MissAshMadrid) October 16, 2016

We can't say we were expecting that!
The Skype blunder came after Rylan and Matt Edmondson had spoken to X Factor's latest evictee Freddy Parker. Freddy had been sent home from the competition, after receiving the fewest public votes.
He had faced Saara Alto in the sing off, but while both Nicole and Simon had voted to save him, the judges' vote was taken to deadlock. Dermot O'Leary revealed Freddy had the least number of votes and he was given the boot.
Freddy said: "I don't think I let myself down, I gave it the best I could... I'm really happy I did all this. I've made the best friends and hopefully friends for life."
Nicole, meanwhile, admitted she was "gutted" to see Freddy go. She said: "He was the sweetest. I'm just upset that the people at home couldn't see what he can really do. I told him up there to start writing. I need him to write his album. He's a beautiful songbird."
The X Factor continues Saturday 22 October on ITV.
