Try outs for the new series hit Newcastle last weekend, and student Beth from South Shields reportedly wow producers.
“I think there’s a lot of pressure...we’ve had two winners who have come from here," she told Sky's Tyne and Wear.
The teenager, who turned out to the open try outs on Saturday, went on: “I had nothing to loose by entering so I thought why not have a go? [sic]
“When I was in the audition they asked for my name and where I was from. When I said South Shields they said, “not another one!”.”
She added: “I am nervous to sing in front of the judges but I think I can handle it.”
