Here’s a first look at The X Factor 2017 this weekend as the judges cause chaos at Thorpe Park.
Try outs continue this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV having filmed earlier this year across the UK in Liverpool, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.
Plus, for the first time ever, Thorpe Park Resort.
This weekend auditions are back in the unusual location and judges Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne make full use of the facilities.
In this preview from the weekend, we see Simon first buying everyone doughnuts and ice cream as the panel explore their surroundings.
Simon then takes charge of a buggy as he ferries his fellow judges to a gift shop, before attempting to drive through the front door.
It’s fair to say that the plan doesn’t quite work out he hoped…
As well as the fun and frolics from the panel, this weekend’s shows will see yet more auditions in front of the judges.
Hopefuls will again be competing for at least three yeses in order to join those already through to bootcamp.
This year’s auditions have passed the halfway point and the competition his heating up.
Grace Davies is the one of the favourites after six audition shows, having originally wowed the judges in the first week with her self-penned song Roots.
However she faces stiff competition from brothers Sean and Conor Price who impressed the panel last weekend with a cover of Bob Dylan’s All Along the Watchtower.
Aoife Heffron from bookies BoyleSports said: “Sean and Conor Price have incredibly amassed over one million views for their audition video on YouTube so it comes as no surprise that their odds have already been cut from the 5/1 second favourites to the joint 4/1 favourites alongside Grace Davies.”
She added: “Punters just can’t get enough of the lads and have been backing them off the boards since Monday. We’ve had bets rolling in as big as €100 on Sean and Conor Price as keen punters snap up their current 4/1 price, which may not be around for long!”
The X Factor 2017 continues Saturday and Sunday night at 8PM on ITV.
