Hill said about the show to the Daily Mail: "The thing about Simon [Cowell] is that he has this great, strong image.

"The show will at times be scathing, without being cynical."

The musical revolves around a girl called Chenice who lives in a caravan with her grandfather. She hasn't heard of The X Factor as her grandfather is in an iron lung that blocks TV signals.

Rebecca Quigley, managing director of Stage Entertainment's UK interests, said: "It's going to be quite a wacky big show,

"Louis Walsh and Cowell are characters in the show - which will feature 19 new songs - along with others you might recognise, but who have different names.

"We learn why [Cowell] wears his trousers high."
