The TV ad pokes fun at the show's format, suggesting the judges are all robots and that they manufacture pop stars in a secret lab. Nick Grimshaw is dishing out Louis Walsh's famous catchphrases as he's been given 'last year's chip' and there's a room of Cheryl robots – Chez-Bots if you will – ready to dish out the necessary emotional reaction: tears, empathy, mocking Simon...
