Simon Cowell Gets PISSED When He Has To Mentor The Older Age Group On X Factor UK — And Drops An F-Bomb Right In Front Of The Poor Contestants!

Simon Cowell wasn’t too pleased with his batch of contestants he’ll be mentoring on this season of X Factor U.K.!

This season of the hit singing competition started off with a twist when fans were put in control to decide which judge would coach each category!

Most judges liked their fates — Rita Ora got to mentor the girls, Nick Grimshaw had the boys, and Cheryl Cole received the groups!

But when Simon found out he would be coaching the “overs” category, he was legitimately ANGRY!

Upon hearing he would have to mentor the batch of middle aged contestants, the former American Idol judge was visibly annoyed — and even blurted out in front of the audience:

“For f**k’s sake├óΓé¼┬ª”

To make matters even more awkward, the overs contestants — who were originally ecstatic that the music mogul would be coaching them — watched him gripe about having to work with them!

For what it’s worth, Cowell did apologize — but for swearing on TV, not for belittling the overs category. He posted on Twitter:


Either way, the whole thing was very unprofessional — but Simon has never been shy about saying EXACTLY what’s on his mind, so we can’t say we’re surprised!

Watch the entire awkward moment go down in the clip (above)!
