Details of the next stage of The X Factor auditions 2014 have been confirmed this morning.

This year's judges - Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole and Mel B - kicked off the first round of try outs last month.

The four piece concluded the last set of auditions in Edinburgh today, having already visited London, Cardiff and Manchester.

This year has once again seen a return of the judging rooms, with the hopefuls having to sing acapella in front of the judges and judges alone to make it through.

Now they face the second half of this year's new 'double audition' format: A performance in front of a live audience.

"The plan is to have the best of both worlds with regard to auditions," an X Factor insider said, "So the contestants will start with just the judges in an audition room. If they get through then they will go on to an auditorium."

For the second series in a row, this year the arena auditions will only be taking place in London, at the massive Wembley Arena.

A 3,000 strong audience of fans will be invited to watch the auditions as with the arena try outs in previous years, as the judges give their opinions on the acts ahead of the bootcamp stages later in the summer.

The Arena auditions will take place between Friday 1 of August and Monday 4 of August, with two filming sessions each day.
