X Factor auditions: Top tips

Know your song inside out: You don't want to forget your lyrics or miss that big crescendo note!

Look after your voice: Don't go out drinking the day before! Get an early night and be sure to warm up your vocals before the audition.

Wrap up: You may be outside for a bit in the queues and given the bizarre weather right now you should keep warm.

Bring food and drink: Depending on the turn out it could be a long wait to get seen, so come prepared. At least take a bottle of water for your voice.

Be out there: This is The X Factor, not The Voice, so show off your personality as well!

The X Factor will air on ITV later this year.
