Simon Cowell’s son Eric gives dad a kiss on X Factor and is excited to meet Louis Tomlinson

Simon Cowell's son Eric made a surprise appearance on The X Factor tonight so he could meet Louis Tomlinson.

The four-year-old popped onto screens wearing a pair of noise-cancelling earphone and shook Louis' hand as well as giving him a high five.

Speaking about fatherhood, Simon said to Louis: “It has been the best thing in my life.

You know why? Because I see everything through a more positive light now.”

Eric's mother is Lauren Silverman, a socialite from New York.

She and Simon, x, got together in 2013 amid some controversy as Lauren was already married.

Eric is just four years old but Simon reckons he can already spot talent

Simon previously said about Eric coming on to the show: “The first time I brought him to Britain’s Got Talent he thought it was scary because of the big red Xs, but then after a few months I said, ‘What does Daddy do when he goes to work?’ and he said I pressed buttons – it’s a little more than that!

“Now, he understands the show so I watch him and I’m like, ‘Eric do you like it? Don’t you like it?’

“He’s got a really good eye and ear for it, so yes, he’s going to be doing this one day.”

The ITV show has a newly revamped judging panel that includes the former One Directioner, Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field.

Meanwhile fans have called the show a fix after West End star Giovanni Spano was given a second chance after fluffing his audition.

Viewers couldn't believe it when he was allowed to pick another song and try again following his shambolic performance.

Giovanni started his audition by professing his love for rock music, telling the cameras: “My passion for rock music started at the age of eight...

Simon told Louis that Eric is the best thing to ever happen to him

"My mum came down the stairs one day and was like 'Who the hell is singing?' And I was like 'Mum, it's me!'

Taking to the stage, Gio misjudged the mood as he asked the live studio audience to join him in singing a rendition of Gimme Some Lovin’ by The Spencer Davis Group.

As the performance fell shamefully flat, Simon Cowell brought the singing to anx abrupt end.

“Ok, we got it. This is not working for me at all,” the head judge declared.

Simon then asked: “Giovanni, can we hear your second song please?” – and the long-haired performer then launched into a version of the Goo Goo Dolls' hit Iris.

Securing a yes from all three judges following the second performance, Gio sailed through to the next round – to the absolute fury of fans watching at home.
