X Factor auditions underway for 2019

X Factor Auditions

Live auditions resume in March

The X Factor Live Tour 2019 begins in Nottingham this week, with the stars of the 2018 series Dalton Harris, Scarlett Lee, Anthony Russell, Danny Tetley, Acacia & Aaliyah, Brendan Murray, Shan Ako and Bella Penfold going on the road to venues across the UK and Ireland until 6 March.

And if the sight of their names up in lights stirs the star inside you, now's your chance to audition for this year's series.

Live auditions began last week in Belfast, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Torquay, Sheffield and Truro but the next batch won't begin until after the end of the Live Tour, with Bristol, Newcastle, Norwich and Hull the next locations on 9 March.

Applications for the auditions can be taken online by registering for an event or sending in a video, although everyone who turns up in person on the day will be guaranteed to be seen.
