Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson channel X Factor stars in silly new promo video


They're gearing up to host X Factor spin-off programme The Xtra Factor Live when the ITV series kicks off later this August.

And the show's new hosts Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson have given everything they've got for a brand new promotional video... and it's hilarious.

The affable duo have dressed up as four previous X Factor acts to recreate their music videos and the result is brilliant.

First of all, Rylan and Matt are seen dressed up as X Factor 2008 winner Alexandra Burke in scant American football uniforms while singing along to her hit Broken Heels.

With the duo clad in tummy-baring crop tops and sharp, black bob wigs, it makes for incredible viewing as they start pulling out the dance moves.

It's then on to Jedward for a rendition of their cover of Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby, before they move on to JLS and the band's hit single Everybody In Love.

Rylan and Matt finish their ode to X Factor as they dress up as 2011 winners Little Mix to mimic the group's Hair video, complete with slinky nightwear and a pillow fight.

The jury is out on which of the two presenters makes a better girl-band member.

The video follows a re-enactment of Rylan's iconic moment on the sofa at Judges' Houses when he took part in the show in 2012, when he literally broke down in screaming tears when Nicole Scherzinger revealed she was taking him through to the live shows.

The Xtra Factor Live, a fresh new format for the offshoot, will kick off after the first audition show of the new series of ITV's landmark talent programme.
