Ant crossed his arms for the picture and looked dapper in a button up shirt which boasted a red checked pattern throughout it.
Comedian David looked smart for the auditions, wearing a white shirt and tie with his black suit, and also posed with fellow judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.
Amanda cut a stylish figure in a pink ensemble and wore her blonde locks down and slightly wavy while Alesha wowed in a chunky gold necklace.

It comes after Ant allegedly agreed to give his ex Lisa more than half of his estimated £50 million fortune.
According to The Sun, the I’m A Celebrity host is ‘delighted’ the case has come to an end as he can ‘move on’, two years after announcing their split.

Denial: However Lisa denied reports the couple have finally reached a divorce settlement on Twitter, calling it a ‘load of old nonsense’
However, as the news broke, Lisa took to Twitter to deny the claims, posting: ‘Nope a load of nonsense AGAIN….’
She went to ‘like’ tweets which stated: ‘no amount of money could ever compensate for what this poor girl has had to endure’, and ‘Get what you can!
‘You deserve it! Terrible treatment of you since you found out when we did! And with a so called friend! It’s heartbreaking behaviour’.
Lisa also made her feelings clear on Saturday after liking a tweet which branded her ex ‘s****y and spineless’ amid their divorce battle.
The make-up artist also liked the tweet which suggested the money she is allegedly set to receive ‘means nothing’ because it ‘can’t buy respect’.
The post read: ‘I bet the money means nothing in some respects, it certainly can’t buy the respect she deserves…

The tweet also suggested that she was forced into silence, adding: ‘Or make-up for the s****y spineless way he scurried off & tried to silence her.’
It continued: ‘What the sum is I’m sure it will be put to much better use & I wish her all the best. [heart emoji].’
Ant and Lisa married in July 2006 and announced they were divorcing in January 2018. Their union legally ended during a 30-second hearing in October that year.
