Previous X Factor winner Sam Bailey has told new hopefuls the show creates 'so many opportunities' and to definitely audition when the show visits her home-town later today.

Everyone should definitely go for it - what have they got to lose? My advice for those hoping to audition would be to just enjoy yourself don't give too much away - don't tell them your life story - and sing like your life depends on it.
