In Pictures: On the red (hot) carpet at The X Factor 2013 auditions

With temperatures topping the scales in London yesterday, the X Factor 2013 judges stepped outside Wembley Arena for a bit of a cool down!

Sharon Osbourne, Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger are currently being joined by hosts Dermot O'Leary, Caroline Flack Matt Richardson at Wembley Arena for the next stage of auditions all this week.

This year's show has already seen the panel tour the country with the judges' rooms, and those who impressed have been invited to perform again at the capital all this week.

But while before they were singing acapella just feet from the judges, this time they'll have a whole arena stage for themselves, and some 3,000 audience members to impress.

Those who get three or more yeses will progress to bootcamp, while those who fail on the bigger stage will be sent home.

The X Factor starts on ITV next month.
