Dates for the X Factor 2013 mobile auditions have been revealed, starting today in three locations across the UK.
The new way of trying out for the show was first used in last year’s series, with help from sponsors TalkTalk.
Similar auditions were held for Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year at Morrisons stores.
The Mobile Auditions will travel the UK over the next few weeks, allowing budding artists to try out in locations where the arena auditions tour doesn’t reach.
The most glamorous caravan on telly (we expect) will begins its hunt for talented solo artists and vocal groups in Great Yarmouth, Inverness and Warrington.
Last year’s winner James Arthur originally tried out when the mobile try outs came to Middlesborough, proof that they do apparently work!
X Factor judge Gary Barlow said this time last year: “We want to make sure we find all the talent the country has to offer and the extra auditions allow even more people to try out.”
Unless otherwise stated, the auditions are open from 10AM to 3PM, or 4:30PM for those in full time education.
