The X Factor 2018 continues on ITV tonight (Saturday) and here’s a first look at the latest contestants.
Last week saw auditions kick off with acts including Danny Tetley who belted out Jennifer Hudson’s And I’m Telling You for Simon 17 years after first singing for him on Pop Idol.
Who will join them this weekend?
This evening sees the audition try outs continue on ITV from 8:30PM with a whole host of brand new acts hoping for at least three yeses from the judges.
Back behind the judges’ desk this are Louis Tomlinson, Ayda Williams, Simon Cowell and Robbie Williams.
As always, they’re joined by Dermot O’Leary who’s on hand to guide us viewers through the auditions and offer a supportive hug to the contestants whether it’s a yes or no.
Acts need three or more yeses to make the next stage – but who will get through?
