The website revealed that searches for the destination compared to the previous week was up 433%. It’s not just flight searches that also increased, with package holidays to Mykonos up 255%.

The new judges’ locations trumped that of mainstay Louis Walsh. Louis’s destination, Barcelona, has seen uplift in searches of just 22%. However Los Angeles, as visited by Gary Barlow and the boys has seen a 43% increase while Miami, which was visited by Kelly Rowland and the girls, received an increase of 48% compared to the previous week. Peter Smith, travel expert at TravelSupermarket said: “People enjoy being inspired by TV, celebrities and films for their holidays, so the concept of ‘screenspiration’ isn’t a new trend. It in fact opens up a whole new world of possibilities that people might not have considered before.”
