You know the summer’s dwindling when the networks pull out their big guns – and there’s none bigger than a new series of The X Factor…

This year, X Factor wannabes have to perform live in front of 2000-strong audience, but just like previous series the talent veers from the wonderful to the woeful.

Watch these auditions from The X Factor, screening on ITV1 on Saturday, August 22 at 7pm.
