Cheryl Fernandez-Versini leads the way in the new X Factor advert, which has almost got a Game Of Thrones theme to it!

Cheryl, who has returned to the ITV1 show following a three-year hiatus, is dressed in a military-style skirt and shirt as she saunters into shot. Behind her, she has an army of contestants waving flags and brandishing shields.

X Factor stalwart, Louis Walsh, is next to appear and he looks at Cheryl before she gives him a stern wink. Suddenly, the crowds of another rival team part and Mel B is revealed.

The former Spice Girl looks at the camera and says: "Things...are about to get loud." Simon Cowell then appears, declaring: "It's time to get down to business."

After Mel B shouts "charge", each of the four teams yell and roar before racing towards each other, creating the shape of an X, while One Republic's 'Love Runs Out' plays over the top.

The advert has certainly got us excited for the new series, and so it should have, as it cost a reported £1 million to film. WOW.

There has been no official start date announced for The X Factor, but it is thought to premiere at the end of this month. We. Can't. Wait!
