Here we go again! The X factor auditions tour is about to begin, this year they kick off in sunny Skegness and Sheffield!

Last year I turned up at the X Factor auditions that were being held in my home town and it was all a bit of a flop to be honest.

The X Factor auditions were being held in a shopping center and I was expecting to find a crowd of people waiting to show off their talent but no – there was a single solitary bloke with a guitar and a young woman holding up an X Factor sign! 

I went for a wander and got back to the spot an hour later to see the same guy with the guitar having his photo taken in front of the X Factor sign. 

I admit I found it all extremely funny but then I’m sure the bigger cities get a lot more people auditioning, so don’t let me put you off!

Don't be late for the X Factor auditions!

According to the X Factor website: ‘Acts are advised to turn up early to the Auditions. If you impress The X Factor team, you will then be in with a chance to audition in front of The X Factor judges.’

So remember, these are the first of several auditions – successful applicants will still have a few more hoops to jump through before being chosen to appear on TV!

For X factor 2015 there were also mobile auditions, where the X Factor UK van went to several smaller and more remote towns to give people the chance to audition. There’s no word yet if this will happen for X factor 2016 but watch this space for more news!

Finally, a quick reminder that the X Factor betting on the winning category has begun, you can find X Factor odds at both William Hill and Coral bookmakers. Check out their offers for new customers on our home page!
