Britain's Got Talent Auditions In Newcastle
Thousands of people are expected at Newcastle's St James' Park to audition for Britain's Got Talent.
Jamie Lambert from Washington was one of the winners of last years' show, along with his Collabro bandmates.
Executive producer Amelia Brown said:
"Britain’s Got Talent has an amazing record of celebrating fantastic talent and changing people’s lives – from Susan Boyle and Diversity through to Paul Potts, Ashleigh and Pudsey and this year’s winners Collabro.
They all took a chance and applied for the show and that’s what we want you to do this year. We can’t wait to see the talent that Newcastle has to offer."
The auditions are being held at the stadium between 11am and 6pm.
Tributes have been paid to Newcastle United's ``legendary tea lady'' who has died aged 90 after serving the club for half a century.
