PICTURES! X Factor 2013 judges walk red carpet at Wembley Arena

Here's all the glam pictures from today's red carpet at the first arena auditions of The X Factor 2013.

This year's judges - Sharon Osbourne, Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger - were joined by hosts Dermot O'Leary, Caroline Flack Matt Richardson at Wembley Arena for the next stage of the competition.

In June, the panel toured the country with the return of the judges' rooms, as the hopefuls performed acapella in front of the judges and judges alone to make it through.

Now those who have had three or more yeses will be going on to face the second half of this year's new 'double audition' format: A performance in front of a live audience.

The arena auditions will be taking place only in London this year, with try outs all this week at Wembley Arena.

The sun was shining this morning as thousands of fans gathered to watch the judges' arrive before joining them inside for the auditions.
