X Factor 2017: Talia Dean puts a spell on the judges

Talia Dean X Factor

The X Factor 2017 auditions continue tonight with Talia Dean singing for the judges.

And she revealed a unique history with two of them.

It turned out that Talia has met both Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger previously before, while working at Heathrow Airport.

"You don't recognise me do you?" Talia asked the panel.

She then explained to Nicole and Sharon: "You told me to go for this. I'm here because of you. I've carried your bags and you told me to go for this and that's why I'm here today.

"I've had photos with you in my uniform!"

With this being her chance to shine, Talia left a lasting impression with her audition.

She belted out a cover of I Put A Spell On You to get four yeses from the panel.

As always, contestants needed three or more yeses from the panel to make it through to bootcamp.

And for those that got through tonight, there was an easy way to celebrate with this week's auditions taking place at Thorpe Park theme park.

In scenes to be shown over the weekend, the judges cause a splash before getting the fright of their lives as they explore the resorts' rides and attractions.

But the main reason for their visit is to find more talent.

We're two shows down now and 16 acts have made the next round in the four categories and they're quite a varied bunch, ranging from boy bands to a stripping Ed Sheeran fan.

The X Factor auditions continues on ITV, Saturday & Sunday at 8PM.

Bootcamp will air on ITV later in the year where the acts will be cut down for the brutal six chair challenge.

The live shows then follow after judges' houses, with the final set for December.
