Cool and the gang… Xtra Factor hosts Dermot and Holly join Louis, Cheryl, Simon and Dannii
Now, onto the ‘talent’… Cheryl’s taking it all very seriously
Dannii, however, struggles to hide her mortification at one act
Simon, of course, swiftly returns to his favourite subject – his opinion
Louis points one act in the direction of the door
Don’t you understand?! It’s the green door marked ‘EXIT’
And so to the talent… Shayne Ward’s back for another crack
Sinitta’s let herself go a bit
A little bit of styling and a fistful of gel and we could have Rhydian Mk II on our hands
But he has left the judges all shook up
X Factor host Dermot and Xtra Factor presenter Holly have a surprise for one judge…
Welcome to the show, Cheryl
Are you sure it’s no-cal?
Then it’s back to the serious business of Simon finding another superstar to sign up
You certainly aren’t… But you may just have that indefinable X factor
Are they tears of joy or woe?
Perhaps it’s time a group triumphed in X Factor?
The girls are playing nicely together – unlike the last series
It’s like a weight has been lifted off Dannii’s shoulders
The judges have been busy filming auditions throughout the summer
See the results on ITV1 this Saturday at 7.30pm when The X Factor returns for a new series
