The X Factor auditions in Manchester this week (beg13Jun16) took a surprising turn when a man who auditioned alongside his girlfriend for the judges decided to propose.

A man who auditioned with his girlfriend on The X Factor stunned the judges when he decided to propose after their performance.

The pair showcased their talents for judges Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh as the search for the next big thing in music arrived in Manchester this week (beg13Jun16).

After their audition, the man decided to pop the question to his unsuspecting girlfriend - and much to the surprise of the panel.

"They told the judges they’ve only been together about six months but they moved in together after a few weeks," a source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

"It was all quite out of the blue at The X Factor, the man ended up proposing in front of the cameras and thankfully his girlfriend said yes."

Hopefuls on this year's (16) series are going all out to impress the judges in the hope of making it through to the next stage of the ITV talent show.

However, many of them are finding their dreams crushed by none other than Sharon, who is making her return to the panel for the new series.

According to Britain's The Sun newspaper, Sharon has shocked many with her harsh comments to the singing wannabes, with Monday's (13Jun16) auditions proving the most explosive so far.

"Sharon’s showing no mercy this year. She’s had contestants, who have queued up for 16 hours to audition, in pieces," a source told the publication. "Some were left so distraught by her comments they refused to do interviews afterwards.

"She even described one as looking ‘like a little hooker’. It’s safe to say the b***h is back."

Sharon appears to have taken over from 'Mr Nasty' Simon, but insisted she doesn't reject people just for the fun of it. She added to the newspaper that she has come across her fair share of talented acts over her years in the music industry, so knows singing skills when she sees them.

“I don’t want to hurt anyone, but unfortunately the nerves and rejection during the audition process does often cause some tears," she said. "I’m a mum and a grandma, I don’t want to intentionally hurt anyone who comes to audition but sometimes you have to say no."
