PICTURES! See tonight's acts on The X Factor 2018 auditions

Who's on The X Factor tonight?

The X Factor 2018 returns to ITV tonight for its second round of auditions - but who's taking to the stage?

This evening sees the second episode on ITV from 8PM as acts compete for a place in the next round.

Host Dermot O'Leary is back on hand to guide us through the auditions as a new line up of judges take their seats on the panel.

Alongside Simon Cowell are Robbie Williams, Ayda Williams and Louis Tomlinson.

This year, the acts are making their first audition in front of the judges and a live audience at Wembley Arena.

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.

Acts in tonight's episode include Olatunji Yearwood from Trinidad and Tobago who sings Calypso and Soca music.


We also meet Brendan Murray, who is given a tough time from the judges after his first song choice - Ella Eyre's We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes Off - falls flat.

More contestants on tonight's show are Marc Higgins, a 36-year-old Firefighter at Southampton Airport who previously made judges' houses in 2010 as part of a group, and Jacqueline Faye, a 53-year-old from Wales who sings Cilla Black's You’re My World.

Finally we meet Anthony Russell who auditioned for the series last year. Anthony became one of the favourites to win the show last year following an emotional performance of Julia Michaels' 'Issues'.

However, a shock development saw him quit the competition ahead of the Six Chair Challenge, citing "personal reasons".

Back in tonight's show, Anthony sings Avvici's Wake Me Up in a bid to make it through to the six chair challenge again.

The X Factor 2018 airs tonight at 8PM on ITV.

The show continues Saturday and Sunday nights throughout the autumn and winter.
