TellyMix goes to the Britain's Got Talent auditions in London

Alesha Dixon (Britain's Got Talent 2013)

Last night we braved the cold and snow to head down to Oxford Circus for the latest round of Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions in London.

For the first time in the show's history, the try outs in the capital are being held at the prestigious London Palladium, the so-called 'Home of Variety'.

We popped down on an absolutely freezing afternoon to sneak in to catch a glimpse a some of the weird and wonderful acts who were on stage hoping to impress Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams.

Along the way we took some pictures to share, like this pretty one of the outside of the venue.

Unfortunately, the audience didn't ever see this as they were stuck queuing around the back in a cold side alley.

Once inside we warmed up and sneaked a picture of the stage which looks a lot better than our photo shows.

Auditions took a while to kick off as we waited for an hour wait due to a bloke misplacing a screwdriver (or something like that), so we took this picture of some fancy lights that were behind us to pass the time.

Eventually things got going and despite complaints about there being too many singers, we saw only one.

Instead of singers, we saw plenty of wacky - if useless - wannabes.

There were dancers, bands, skaters and even an artist.

The stand out of the night was a 27-year-old Holly Willoughby look-a-like who got the audience on their feet and managed to get one of the only two Yeses Simon gave out!

And just to be clear, her act wasn't impersonating Holly.

We're not allowed to say much more about the acts we saw, as people who do seem to disappear never to be heard of again, but expect a lot more randomness than ever when the show hits telly this Spring.
