Toilet trauma for X Factor hopeful

Aaron Dale needed directions after his X Factor audition

A Harry Styles look-a-like discovered that there was more than one direction when he walked out of his X Factor audition the wrong way and ended up in the loo.

Aaron Dale, 24, from Middlesbrough, got lost after singing 1D's hit What Makes You Beautiful and needed judge Nicole Scherzinger to show him the way out of the audition room.

The former Pussycat Doll was more impressed with Next Of Kin - a trio of brothers from Essex who write songs with their mother.

The group - Nathan Bass, 32, Kieran, 27, and Mark, 29 - had a top 20 hit when they were teenagers, toured with Westlife and were billed as the UK's version to Hanson, but now work in a factory packing boxes.

Youngest brother Kieran tells the judges they "just want another chance at it" and their performance moves Nicole to tears and gets them a standing ovation from the panel.

Not everyone is quite so impressive with 33-year-old Samantha Harper, and her vibrato vocals confuse the judges so much they think the cleaner from Port Talbot is singing in Welsh.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
