The affectionate clip also features the likes of Meghan Trainor, Nick Jonas, the pop-punk act Five Seconds of Summer, And & Dec and Craig David.

Simon Cowell has been ringing the changes after 'The X Factor's annus horribilis in 2015, with Louis Tomlinson mooted to be Grimshaw's replacement.
In the wake of the poor ratings it suffered last year, Simon Cowell has made changes to ‘The X Factor’ by axing co-presenter Caroline Flack, soon after Nick Grimshaw confirmed that he had quit the judging panel of his own accord.
According to The Sun, 36 year old Flack is said to have paid the price for the criticism that she and co-host Olly Murs received as they presented the ITV show for the first time last year. The final episode averaged viewing figures of only 5.95 million, amid flagging ratings plaguing the whole series, and it’s not clear that Murs will keep his place either as the pair were frequently criticised for making mistakes.
