TWO minibuses have been given an X Factor makeover.

Esign, based at Farrows Business Centre, in Thorrington, was asked to wrap two Mercedes vehicles with the TV show’s logo.

They will be used during the filming at talent auditions.

The firm received the contract at the last minute and a team of five worked around the clock for three days to prepare the vans.

Zak Pickering, managing director, said: “It’s a big thing for us. It’s a really big brand to work with.

“Just to be seen to be dealing with X Factor is a good thing for a local firm.”
