X Factor producers have admitted that the show’s team create banners for the studio audience to hold each week.

Supporters in the crowd are regularly seen waving signs which contain messages like „We love Simon“ and „Stacey to win“.

However, it has now emerged that none of the banners are made by genuine fans of the ITV1 talent series. Show runners simply hand them out to audience members before collecting them back once the live episode is over, The Sun reports.

[…]The contest continues tomorrow at 8pm on ITV1.

Offensichtlich werden die Banner, die man während der X Factor Shows sieht, nicht von Fans gemacht, sondern von Mitgliedern der Crew. Die Banner werden vor der Show an die Zuschauer verteilt und am Ende am Ende wieder eingesammelt. Das hat ein Warm-Upper den Boulevard-Zeitung „The Sun“ erzählt.
