So the news is that Simon Cowell will play a “significant” role at some point during this series appearing “in some guise somewhere” before the final. But probably not just yet. Also, there are rumours that Cowell-favourite Sinitta may not be getting her annual holiday at the judges’ houses this time around, with Sharon Osbourne possibly helping out Louis Walsh instead. For now, though, we’re still in the audition stage, which some have criticised for its new TOWIE-style format (designed to make us bond with contestants). Makes a change from complaints about the singing, I suppose. There’s an extra edition tomorrow evening.
Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa and Louis Walsh continue their search for a pop star in the first of two editions this week as more solo singers and groups, from the talented to the tuneless, set out to impress at the auditions. At stake is a place in the next round - boot camp - which Simon Cowell has promised will be tougher than in previous years. Dermot O'Leary is backstage with the contestants as they prepare to face the judges and an audience of thousands.
