Dermot O’Leary has officially launched The X Factor 2016 with a brand new advert.
It comes with hugging, it comes with Wagner and it comes with news that it’s because we asked so nicely that we’re getting the in-room auditions back. Perhaps we should start asking for more? A free trip to Judges’ Houses would be nice wouldn’t it? We all need that.
Anyway, the point of Dermot’s return to the screen is to tempt singers to the X Factor. It’s what the show’s about after all.
So if you’ve been too busy singing in front of your mirror to notice the hundreds of other auditions that have happened over the years, now’s your chance to get involved.
And here are the dates you need to know:
Thursday 7th April
Birmingham City Football Club
Saturday 9th April
Sunday 10th April
Sunday 17th April
Sunday 24th April
Newcastle United Football Club
Wednesday 27th April
Sunday 1st May
Saturday 7th May
Liverpool Convention Centre
Saturday 14th May
The X Factor returns to ITV later this year
