ITV talent show the X Factor is looking for stars of the future today at Cabot Circus in Bristol.

The show, which is now in its 11th year, is trying out a new mobile audition system - so instead of performing in front of producers, hopefuls will sing in a booth and their offering will be accessed behind the scenes.

Successful performers will be picked to sing in front of the show's judges - Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Mel B and Louis Walsh.

A Bristol singer has never won the X Factor.
