The X Factor 2017 judges hit Thorpe Park this week as auditions take place at the very unusual location.

The X Factor auditions continue this Saturday where the judges & Dermot O’Leary make an almighty splash on the Tidal Wave at THORPE PARK Resort in Surrey when auditions were held at the theme park.

In this first preview clip, Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh & Dermot O’Leary board the water ride, wearing ponchos ready for the oncoming splash.

Simon tells Louis: “You look like a bird!”

As they ascend, Nicole is ready with her hands in the air, while Simon is a little more weary and says, “Why did we agree to this?”

Screaming on their way down to the splash, the judges, including a terrified Louis, and Dermot duck for cover as they are covered by the wave.

Stepping off the ride, the judges are drenched head to toe, but confirming his thrill for the ride, Dermot says “How awesome was that?”

But a drenched Nicole doesn’t appear to agree…

After drying themselves off, the judges head into the auditions room for the latest round of try outs.

As always, acts need three or more yeses from the judges get through to the next stage to and join those already throw to bootcamp.

We’re two shows down now and 16 acts have made the next round in the four categories and they’re quite a varied bunch, ranging from boy bands to a stripping Ed Sheeran fan.

Who will be next to face the judges?

The X Factor auditions continues on ITV, Saturday & Sunday at 8PM.

Bootcamp will air on ITV later in the year where the acts will be cut down for the brutal six chair challenge.

The live shows then follow after judges’ houses, with the final set for December.
