Dermot X Factor 2012 auditions

The X Factor 2012 open auditions moved to Manchester this weekend with Dermot O'Leary in tow, and it seems that some of the hopefuls just couldn't keep their hands off the hunky host!

Thousands packed out the grounds in and around Manchester United's Old Trafford Stadium, and as Dermot got to work questioning the wannabes, one girl couldn't but grab his bum!

And Dermot didn't seem to mind too much, adding that he was impressed with the huge turnout.

He said: "It's been the biggest crowds we've ever had in Manchester which is extraordinary."

The X Factor 2012 auditions continue in Glasgow, Wales and London over the next month.
