Using the ITV2 dating show’s famous catchphrase, Robbie shouted: "I’ve got a text."

Simon and Ayda leaned in as Robbie revealed what the message said as the judges clutched onto their Love Island waterbottles.

He read: "Judges it’s time to face the music #itsayesfromme"


Louis was missing from the advert but he was there in spirit via a Love Island water bottle.

The judging line-up was represented by four bottles featuring the judges’ names laid out in the positions they will sit on the desk during the series.

Love Island voiceover Iain Stirling then said: "The X Factor. Back soon on ITV."
