There is no doubt that this year’s X Factor return has been less than captivating with plummeting viewership figures and no new faces in the mix.
However, there was one moment that captured the hearts of those who were watching at the weekend and it had nothing to do with the singing.
As we got a glimpse of life backstage on the show, we also got a little peak at the ever adorable Eric Cowell as Simon’s son came to visit dad on set.
Girlfriend Lauren Silverman arrived with the pair’s son and the internet melted.
With a card for Simon and an adorable dance for the cameras, Eric was the most memorable moment of this weekend’s X Factor.
The adorable moment is just another in a string of sweet videos of Simon and his son, proving he's not all that scary after all.
