Beck Martin took over The X Factor 2016 auditions tonight with his original song Friday night.

Beck is a 28 year-old gym instructor and manager in a fast food restaurant from Swanley, although originally hails from the Czech Republic.

"I have goals and dreams and I am chasing them," he said in tonight's show. "I work as a gym instructor and as a manager in McDonalds."

After bonding with Simon Cowell over "fish burgers", Beck introduced his very own original song called Friday Night.

"It's about Friday night," he enlightened the panel.

Complete with a smoke machine, Beck put on quite the performance and Nicole Scherzinger wasn't afraid to join in as she jumped on top of the desk to dance along to what is sure to be the next big club hit.

Nicole wasn't alone as outside the audition room, Dermot O'Leary and everyone else watching on also got into the spirit of the song.

However Simon Cowell wasn't impressed: "I'm saying no."

But the other judges came to Beck's rescue.

"I am saying YES!" declared Louis Walsh.

"It has to be a YES!" announced Sharon Osbourne.

"Yes to club X Factor, Friday Night!" shouted Nicole Scherzinger.

After the auditions had wrapped up for the evening, Simon complained: "That was the weirdest day I've ever had. This is the crazy flame and all the crazy moths come to The X Factor."

The X Factor continues Sunday night at 8PM on ITV with the latest auditions.
