Lorraine Kelly managed to expose the true intentions of X Factor: Celebrity stars Jeremy Edwards and Brendan Cole.

The Holby City actor and former Strictly Come Dancing star are taking to the stage for the celebrity version of the ITV singing contest.

The celebs are looking to impress judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger and scoop a record deal.

But Lorraine joked that the friends, who could be the Robson and Jerome of a generation, just wanted to have a “jolly” in LA.

Asking why they decided to take part, Lorraine said: “It wasn’t that you wanted a jolly in Los Angeles by any chance?”
