Yes Lad were the VERY first act on The X Factor 2016 this year are hoping to become the next big boy band.

Made up of Joel, Cian, Sonny, Lewis and Luke and aged 19-21, Yes Lad are from all around of the North West.

They've given up their jobs for The X Factor but why the name? They said on the show tonight: "Where we come from, when you see your mates, you say 'Yes, lad!" instead of Hello."

The five lads have even given themselves nicknames - including Dad Lad and Sexy Lad - and want to become a big Northern band.

"We're Northern scruffy lads who sing, it's about breaking out of that normal life and becoming the popstar we've always wanted to be," the group said.

The five piece had a LOT of support with them but the friend and family stayed behind as the group went into the judges' room to face Simon & Co.

Yes Lad won over the panel with a cover of Justin Timberlake's Can’t Stop The Feeling that had all four judges saying yes to them.

Louis Walsh said: "Really good audition, great song audition, you could be really good."

Nicole Scherzinger added: "You are all just as sweet as pie and so cute."

And Simon Cowell concluded: "For me there is one star... but I'm not going to say who it is."

So Yes Lad are through to bootcamp but did you rate them?

The X Factor 2016 auditions continue Sunday at 8PM on ITV and don't forget to catch the Xtra Factor LIVE at 9:30PM tonight on ITV2 with Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson.
