PICTURES! X Factor auditions 2013 hit Manchester

The X factor 2013 auditions celebrated a record turnout in Manchester today, the penultimate venue for this year's try outs.

So far this year the auditions have already visited London, Birmingham and Cardiff, as well as a range of smaller venues with the mobile auditions.

To be in with a chance of making it through to the UK’s most talk about entertainment show all was needed today was a verse or chorus of one or more songs acapella.

Bosses made sure they saw everyone who had turned up by 9am this Saturday at Old Trafford Stadium, however long it took.

And it look a while!

Thousands of wannabes started queuing from 5 AM to sing for the show's producers and hopefully make it in front of the still to be confirmed judging panel.

Unfortunately, while of the day started with a bright sunshine it didn't last in true British fashion, with the white rain soon beginning to pour down on the waiting wannabes.

If you didn't make it to Manchester you will still have one last chance to audition in Glasgow next month.
