Here are all the pictures from tonight's first auditions on The X Factor 2018.

The new series will see the return of the arena auditions at The SSE Arena, Wembley, in front of the judges and a 4,000 strong audience.

Those auditioning face the brand new panel made up of Simon Cowell, Robbie Williams, Ayda Williams and Louis Tomlinson.

Should they get more than three ‘yeses’ they will go through to the judge’s deliberation, where the judges will decide who gets to fight for a seat in the Six Chair Challenge.

More groups include Livia and The Elementals, who sing an original song, and duo Misunderstood, made up of Jeff and Stefan from London who also sing an self-penned track.


Danny Tetley belts out Jennifer Hudson's And I’m Telling You while Ross Alexander sings The Thompson Twins' Doctor Doctor for the panel as the season kicks off.

Other contestants hoping for a yes in the opening week are 15-year-old Kezia Povey, 17-year-old Charlotte Lee from Doncaster and 16-year-old Molly Scott from County Durham.

Janice Robinson sings Livin’ Joy's Dreamer while Andy Hofton begins his audition with an original track.

However the Customer Service Advisor from Macclesfield is later joined by Robbie Williams on stage for a second song, Robbie's own Angels.

Watch all the auditions and see who gets through when The X Factor returns to ITV tonight on Saturday 1nd September and Sunday 2rd September at 8pm.
