The X-Factor has teamed up with British Airways, as the official airline to fly its celebrity judges and contestants to Bermuda, Cancun, Los Angeles and Nice for the final auditions.

For the first time, the ‘judges’ houses’ episodes will air over three nights in the UK on ITV this Friday (October 3) at 9pm, Saturday and Sunday at 8pm.

The aspiring pop stars travelled to some of the airline’s most glamorous destinations, Bermuda, Cancun, Los Angeles and Nice to perform for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Louis Walsh, in the hope of making it through to the live finals.

Chosen for their exclusivity, glamour and stunning backdrops – the airline has produced packages to each X-Factor destination, for those inspired by the show.
