TalkTalk TV, proud sponsors of The X Factor, has unveiled the newest way to bring TV fans closer than ever to the show - the new BopHeads app will let fans make their own music videos and ‘audition’ for a chance to appear on TV. 

TalkTalk TV teamed up with directors who’ve worked with Calvin Harris, Ed Sheeran, and Jessie J to create a series of stylish videos in which fans can take centre stage.

After downloading the app, they can virtually bop along with friends in funky onesies, dance in a magical world of life-sized toys or be transported onto a glossy hip–hop set. 

Once they’ve chosen the setting for their video, it’s time to pick a song from a selection of pop favourites, including Little Mix’s number one hit ‘Black Magic’, singer-songwriter John Newman’s new single ‘Come and Get It’ and nineties hit ‘Return of the Mack’ by Mark Morrison. The best videos will feature in The X Factor ad breaks on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

TalkTalk TV will also give customers and fans the chance to win thousands of money can’t buy prizes, including tickets to the live shows. Join TalkTalk TV’s X Factor community on FacebookTwitter and YouTube for the chance to win and the latest news.
