The X Factorhost, Dermot O'Leary was forced to apologise after some naughty language was picked up during Sunday night's (October 28) live show.
The swearing was heard after Ayda Field's act Janice Robinson was voted off, though it was unclear whether it was an act, judge or a member of the audience who had let their emotions get the better of them.
"Before the break you might have heard some bad language," Dermot apologised when the show returned from the break.
"I am sorry about that. I have to apologise to anyone who heard any bad language a moment ago.
"Emotions are running high tonight but that is no excuse. So apologies all round."
It seems like the perpetrator might have got away with it, as it doesn't seem like many people actually heard any swearing.
What did Dermot apologise for? I didn't hear any bad language, what did he say? #XFactor

This week, it was a double elimination with Janice and LMC Choir loosing their places in the competition.
Robbie's act, LMC Choir, faced Louis Tomlinson's act, Brendan, in the sing off and Ayda took the decision of who to send home to Deadlock.
It didn't go unnoticed by viewers that she didn't just choose save her husband Robbie Williams' act, like he was accused of doing to hers last week.
The X Factor will return next Saturday (October 3) on ITV for Halloween Week.
