A six foot drag queen impressed producers at The X Factor 2012 auditions in Manchester last weekend, winning himself a place in the next round of try outs.

6ft 7in Aidan was amongst a crowd of around 5,000 wannabes who turned out to audition for the latest series when try outs moved to Manchester on Saturday and Sunday.

The 48-year-old reportedly impressed producers with a performance of Freddie Mercury’s hit Living on My Own.

Aidan admitted he hadn't got the best voice, but reckons the show's he puts on will give Wagner and Johnny Robinson a run for their money.

Or if that fails, there's always Eurovision!

Some hopefuls had queued from 3AM to perform for researchers, who will decide over the next few months which singers will face the yet to be confirmed judging panel.

Take That star Gary Barlow is thought to be back, while it was revealed yesterday that Kelly Rowland is also set to return to The X Factor this year.

Auditions for The X Factor 2012 continue this weekend in Wales, before moving on to Glasgow and London next month.

The show, now in its ninth year, will return to TV screens in August.
