The X Factor is coming to Skegness.

Aspiring pop stars will have the chance to show off their singing skills at The Hildreds Shopping Centre, in Skegness, today (Monday).

If they impress the X Factor team, they will be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges when the judge’s auditions take place in the summer.

The ITV show has been the launch pad for a number of careers including the likes of Olly Murs, Leona Lewis and One Direction.

Centre manager Steve Andrews said: “We are really excited about X Factor choosing The Hildreds to hold the auditions, they have obviously spotted the amazing talent that Skegness has to offer and it would be great to think that in a few months’ time, we might be seeing someone from Skegness in the final. I have every confidence that Skegness will shine and show the rest of the country what makes us great.”

The X Factor audition pod will be situated in the middle of the mall (Unit 16).

Auditions will open at 9am and the queue will close at 6pm.
