Judges arrive in Manchester for first X Factor auditions

Stop! Let me take a selfie. Any guesses who's on the phone cover?

Crowds gathered to wish this year's X Factor Judges luck as they kicked off their search to find this year's finalists in Manchester earlier today.

Gone are the judges' rooms as Cheryl, Rita and Nick wowed the fans on their way to the arena where they're eyeballing this year's hopefuls along with a crowd of 4,000.

They were flanked by Olly & Caroline and new Xtra Factor hosts Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom.
