The UK’s favourite singing show, The X Factor, is back and on the lookout for the next big breakout music stars as they travel the length and breadth of the country on the 2017 audition tour.

The team will be searching high and low, bringing the auditions directly to you in their hunt for singing sensations.

Lincolnshire hopefuls will be able to audition next in Skegness this Saturday (March 11) at The Hildreds Shopping Centre from 11.00am to 5.00pm, or on Monday March 13 in Lincoln at the Waterside Shopping Centre from 10.00am to 5.00pm.

So if you think you could be the next Matt Terry, Louisa Johnson, One Direction, Little Mix or Olly Murs, or know someone who you think could be, now is the time to come along and showcase your vocal talent.

Dermot O’Leary says: “2016 was a fantastic year for The X Factor and now we’re about to kick start the auditions for 2017! We found some incredible talent and some amazing voices last year and now it could be your turn.

“Just one audition could change your life so if you think you’ve got what it takes then why don’t you apply?”

Acts are advised to turn up early to be sure to grab a slot as the Mobile Auditions are on a first come, first served basis and do not need to pre-register. All any budding hopefuls need to do is turn up on the date and time specified.

If they impress The X Factor team with their vocals, they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges, when the judges’ auditions take place in summer.

The hit show has uncovered some outstanding talent across the years. To date, One Direction have sold more than 70 million records worldwide, Olly Murs released four multiplatinum albums with his fifth 24 Hours being recently certified platinum, while Little Mix’s fourth album Glory Days is now the longest reigning No.1 in the UK since the Spice Girls’ debut album Spice.

In 2016, three of the four British lead acts to chart at No.1 in the UK singles chart were discovered by The X Factor – Zayn, James Arthur and Little Mix.

Last year’s winner Matt Terry is currently working on his debut album, after his charity winner’s single When Christmas Come Around debuted at No. 3 in the Official UK Charts.
