Harry Hill's X Factor musical set for 2014

Harry Hill has revealed that his X Factor musical is due to open in 2014.

The TV comic previously revealed that the idea has the approval of the show's supremo Simon Cowell and will please both the "lovers and haters".

It will be based on the format of the X Factor and it was an idea he came up with whilst watching the show after having one too many drinks.

He previously suggested that it would open in autumn 2013 but Hill told This Morning that it has been pushed back to 2014. The TV Burp star said:

"I think it's going to open in spring 2014, we're hoping. It's all about getting in a theatre and getting the whole show in shape. But we've been doing a lot of work on it - we've got a script and we did some workshops just last week funnily enough with all these great, really funny songs."

He continued: "I had to go and pitch it to Simon Cowell which was interesting because it's not entirely flattering - we discover, for instance, why he wears his belt so high up!  "Did you know the real reason? When he was a child, he was a victim of bullies who used give him a wedgie the whole time, so he found the only way to avoid the wedgie was to have the [high trousers]."
