The X Factor – it’s war! Judges prepare for battle in £1million teaser for new series (VIDEO)

The X Factor’ judges have filmed a Game of Thrones-themed advert which premiered on ITV on Friday, August 1.

Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Mel B and Louis Walsh were joined by hundreds of extras at Pinewood Studios shooting the £1million promo video, the most expensive in the show’s history.

The short teaser (below) which took a week to film – sees the four judges lead stomping warrior armies to face each other as they prepare to do battle for the X Factor winning spot.

Louis takes his place at the head of his warriors. Cheryl turns and gives a wink, then Simon appears and says: “It’s time to get down to business”.

Mel B stands at the head of her troops and shouts: “Charge!”.

Cheryl gives the thumbs down which, especially in Game of Thrones, is never good news.

And hundreds of “troops” charge.

By now, Louis is nowhere to be seen. Has he thrown in the towel already?

The X Factor will return to ITV in the autumn.
