Blackpool youngsters looking to show-off their talents can audition for The X Factor.

The TV talent show will be visiting the resort on May 16.

Auditions take place at Houndshill Shopping Centre between 10am and 6pm.

The visit is part of the ITV show’s biggest audition tour, which will visit 50 towns and cities in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The show, fronted by music mogul Simon Cowell, had discovered stars like One Direction, Olly Murs and Leona Lewis over the last few years.

Acts are advised to turn up early to the open auditions as there is no need to book.

Singers will be seen on a first come, first served basis.

If they impress, they will be in with a chance performing in front of Cowell and the other judges during the next round of auditions later in the summer.

An X Factor spokesman said: “Anyone taking part should be sure to turn up early to grab a slot.

“On the larger scale Open Audition Tour everyone who turns up will be guaranteed an audition.”

Cowell said: “If you think you have the potential to be a world-class star, this is your chance to prove it. You really could be the next pop superstar.”

The hit show recently won a National Television Award for best talent show.

Last year’s winner Ben Haenow has already scored his first number one hit and is now working on his debut album.

One Direction have sold more than 50 million records worldwide, Olly Murs has achieved double platinum success, Little Mix have sold 1.3 million albums and Ella Henderson had the fastest selling UK female single debut of the year with Ghost.
