The X Factor judges have been given a digital upgrade for 2015 – as seen in the new trailer for the show.

The ad – which will premiere on ITV tonight (Monday, August 3) at 7.30pm just before Coronation Street – goes undercover at the X Factor laboratory, where the latest technology is being used to give the talent show panel a hi-tech make-over for the new series.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has been cloned into multiple robots to suit every possible situation.

New X Factor Caroline Flack and Olly Murs visit the lab to try and find out the secret formula behind the show where they discover hundreds of Chez-bots. The ‘emotional’ clone says monotonously, “I know exactly what you’re going through pet.”

 

Radio 1 DJ and new judge Nick Grimshaw is fitted with a special microchip to help him give constructive feedback. But in an apparent dig at former judge Louis Walsh, Nick is accidentally given an out-of-date chip, which makes him repeat: “You look like a popstar, you sound like a popstar.”

And Caroline and Olly decide to scan Simon Cowell to see what he is thinking.
