X-Factor auditions in Birmingham

Take That's Gary Barlow has been to the Midlands for the X-Factor auditions as he's one of three new judges on the show.

He joined Louis Walsh on a red carpet outside the LG Arena in Birmingham on Wednesday the 1st June as thousands of people turned up hoping to impress them.

American singer Kelly Rowland and Tulisa from N-Dubz are the two other judges replacing Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole who was recently dropped from the American version of the show.

Gary told Heart he's looking forward to seeing what the Midlands have to offer.
