Could it be that there's one simple prerequisite for making it on to The X Factor judging panel?

It certainly seems like an inability to clap like a normal person may well be the one thing that Rita Ora, Nick Grimshaw, Simon Cowell, and Cheryl have in common.

ITV weatherman Ross Hutchinson made the observation over the weekend and posted the below to Twitter... Check out the evidence!

Has Rita just done her nails? Because that's how we clap when we've just painted our nails, if we have occasion to clap at that moment....

It seems like the X Factor crew have a sense of humour (whoever handles their Twitter account if not the judges themselves) because they said he had them in "stitches".

Us too!
