The X Factor open auditions tour comes to Derry

The X Factor open auditions will take place in Londonderry on Wednesday.

The open auditions tour has been traveling around the UK in recent weeks and will be at Richmond Shopping Centre in the city from 11am to 5pm.

Budding hopefuls will be asked to perform for The X Factor team, with the chance to appear in front of The X Factor panel when the judges’ auditions take place in the summer.

Auditions will be on a first come first served basis and hopefuls may be asked to sing acapella - although each person is asked to bring along a backing track on CD, phone, USB or a guitar.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and have valid ID.

The X Factor will return for its 14th series in August.

Last year's competition was won by Boys category hopeful Matt Terry.

Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh completed the 2016 judges panel, but there has so far been no confirmation on who will appear in this year's line up.
