Welcome to the X Factor Laboratory.
ITV released the trailer for X Factor UK season 12 and it’s amazing.
The teaser will see new presenting duo Caroline Flack and Olly Murs enter an undercover laboratory to meet the judging team and reveal the secret formula behind the new series.
Viewers will see Nick Grimshaw being fitted with a special judging microchip, only to realise he’s got last year’s one when he starts saying on repeat ‘you look like a popstar, you sound like a popstar.’
Rita Ora meanwhile is sent to contestant feed back training, while Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has been robotised, with a different Chez-Bot for every inevitably – the emotional Chez-Bot says monotonously ‘I know exactly what you’re going through pet.’
When they put Simon Cowell under the scanner to determine what he is thinking, he brags ‘I’ve already found this year’s winner. It’s a group. Girls are going to love them, boys are going to love them, bigger than One Direction’, only to reveal his two dogs, Squiddly and Diddly, crooning to ‘You Raise Me Up.’
Guess who appears at the end of the clip?
