However, in a bizarre twist, they will apparently have no idea they are being timed.
A source explained to The Sun: “Simon has been in millions of these auditions and basically just wants to speed them up.
This isn’t the first change Simon has made and over the weekend, auditions took place at Thorpe Park. Y’know, because nothing gets you in the mood for an audition quite like a quick spin on The Saw Ride.
There will also be less live shows, with bosses cutting them down from ten weeks’ worth to six, and it’s also been claimed that eliminations will take place on both the Saturday and Sunday nights, with A-list guest performers also featuring on both evenings.
