In Pictures: The X Factor visits Liverpool for the first time!

Liverpool stage

The X Factor 2011 spent two days in the fantastic city of Liverpool last week, visiting the Echo Arena for the first time in the show's history. Following the success of Britain's Got Talent at the venue back in January, X Factor bosses followed the sister show to the Mersey in the hunt for talent.

New X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos spent the first day in the city celebrating her 23rd birthday, with a hunky butler on hand to carry out her ever whim, while Kelly Rowland seemed to be loving the local accent.

Check out some pictures from the two day stay below and be sure to tune in to The X Factor next month when it returns to ITV1.
