The X Factor bandwagon rolled into Manchester yesterday for two days of auditions. Cheryl Cole was greeted with huge cheers, along with new judge and former Spice Girl Mel B who is new to the panel this year.
Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh were of course also present at The Point at Emirates Old Trafford for the closed door auditions. They'll hit screens on ITV later this year.

Liverpool's Christopher Maloney has had a whirlwind of a week trying to drum up support to get him into the live shows of this year's The X Factor.
As well as their final three, each judge got to pick a wild card entry they want to bring back into the competion and they're all after the public vote to make that final thirteen.
