Because of the X Factor's top ratings, Hippodrome owner Peter Jay has paid seven times the normal amount for an advertisement slot on night time ITV.
And Mr Jay hopes that the highly quiffed Jedward twins from Ireland - John and Edward Grimes - will still be on the X Factor on that weekend as they seem to draw the largest audiences with their much criticised act.
