Who's on The X Factor tonight? Latest auditions

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

This year auditions were held across the UK, taking place in Liverpool, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.

We're now at the half way point of the try outs as more acts compete for spots at the bootcamp stages.

As always, the contestants start with the intimate closed rooms, in which they find themselves eyeball-to-eyeball in front of the judges.

Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh as well as guest judge Alesha Dixon will to be impressed if the hopefuls are to get at least three yeses.

The acts hoping to impress the panel this time around include the rather unique Amrick Channa who sings Technotronic's Pump Up The Jam for the panel.


Nervous youngster 17 -year-old student Benji Matthews endears himself to the judges before even singing with his adorable giggle, while 68-year-old Ronnie Parker is the oldest contestant of the night, singing Tina Turner's Simply The Best

The latest episode also sees some returnees back for a second shot.

Tracy Leanne Jefford previously auditioned for The X Factor back in 2007 where she made bootcamp. Having lost over 5 stone and gone through a divorce her life is very different now but her passion for singing remains.

Plus, 22-year-old musician Nicole Simpson from Scotland returns to The X Factor having previously made bootcamp in 2011

Elsewhere, 25 year-old nursing home singer Russell Jones from Wales gets flirting with Nicole Scherzinger and cheeky with the rest of the judges as he performs his take on The Jungle Book classic I Wanna Be Like You.

Finally we meet brother Sean and Conor Price who are students and buskers from Blessington, Ireland.

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