X FACTOR bosses are said to have hauled in MK1’s Sim and issued him with a warning over an apparent offensive finger gesture he made towards Nicole Scherzinger during Saturday night’s show.

The rapper, who along with singer Charlie make up band MK1, appeared to give the finger to Nicole after she criticised the band’s performance on Saturday.

While the former Pussycat Doll was giving her verdict the rapper twice lifted his finger to his chin – in a gesture which apparently went unnoticed to Nicole but infuriated show bosses.

The show is believed to have received several complaints about the incident, however Sim explained he was just holding the microphone.

He said on his Twitter account on Sunday: “Good morning all, just to set the record straight i DID NOT swear at @NicoleScherzy i have so much respect for her & the fellow judges”.

Meanwhile producers were forced to apologise after judge Tulisa used the word ‘Milf’ live on air while referring to overs contestant Melanie Masson

Producers received Emails from irate parents, angry that their children had been exposed to the term – despite the fact the comments were made well over an hour outside the watershed.
