Cheryl Fernandez-Versini still fighting with Simon Cowell

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini wants to hit Simon Cowell with one of her high heels.

Although Simon has insisted he and his fellow 'X Factor' judge don't argue as much as they used to, Cheryl admitted he can still get her riled up.

Cheryl said: "Me and Simon are still rowing. He knows which buttons to press.

"Sometimes I want to move away from him but he won't let us change seats. He just really wants to wind me up to get a response.

"I don't think I'll throw glasses of water on him - I think those days are done. Maybe I'll use a high heel. That can double up as a weapon, can't it?"

Unluckily for Cheryl, 32, Simon, 55, loves annoying her.

He told The Sun newspaper: "That's a sign of affection if I like someone! The thing about Cheryl is that she's so easy to wind up that I can't stop myself, because it makes me laugh.

"And secretly she finds it funny but she won't admit it. She's been great this year and she is a trouper."

The pair famously fell out when Simon sacked Cheryl from 'X Factor USA' in 2011 but they put aside their differences when she rejoined the UK show in 2014.

While Simon has praised Cheryl for supporting him after his beloved mother Julie died last month, Cheryl said their past difficulties are behind them.

She said: "Can I be honest with you? I love him dearly. I do. Viewers don't want to watch me and Simon fighting. They want to laugh along with us."
