PICTURES! X Factor 2017: See Sunday's auditions and contestants

Here are all the pictures from tonight's second round of auditions on The X Factor 2017.

This year auditions were held across the UK, taking place in Liverpool, Edinburgh, London and Manchester, and in a first for the show, Thorpe Park, where even the judges experienced a ride or two of their own.

For The X Factor 2017, the contestants begin their journey with the intimate closed rooms, in which they find themselves eyeball-to-eyeball in front of the judges.

Tonight we see try outs in Manchester and Edinburgh with guest judge Alesha Dixon.

The Britain's Got Talent judge steps in for Nicole Scherzinger in Manchester and then subs for Sharon Osbourne at Edinburgh's try outs.

Sitting alongside Alesha are the always present Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh.


The acts hoping to impress the panel this time around include 23-year-old student from The Valleys, South Wales LLoyd Macey who has a guaranteed yes as his nan joins the panel after bringing Simon fish finger sandwiches.

We also meet Jordan Rabjohn, a 22-year-old phone shop sales assistant from Sheffield, who sings original song Mexico.

Georgina Panton, a 20-year-old singer and mum-of-one from Birmingham is next in front of the judges and hoping to launch a new career for her an her son.

As auditions move North to Scotland, nervous Nicole Caldwell, a 27-year-old pub singer from Paisley, is one of the latest to face the judges in the audition rooms.

Originally from the Philippines, full time dinner lady GaGa Lord belts out Bond classic Diamonds Are Forever leading to Nicole and Alesha joining her as Bond girls while she sings.

Finally, teenager Shanaya Atkinson-Jones gives an emotional performance as she leaves the judges in tears with a cover of A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera's Say Something.

The X Factor 2017 airs tonight at 8PM on ITV.
