X Factor fans flock to The O2

xfactor.JPGX Factor fans have been queuing in North Greenwich to get a glimpse of the best and worst in new musical talent.

The ITV show is holding three days of live auditions at The O2 from today (July 6).

It is the first year the venue has hosted this stage of the competition, previously held at the Excel and an audience of up tp 200,000 is expected.

A shake up in the judging panel means hopefuls will be singing for an undisclosed combination of Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos, Gary Barlow and Kelly Rowland.
