Cornwall has the X Factor.

Auditions for the ITV talent show are going to be held in the Duchy for the first time ever.

They are next weekend at the Great Western Hotel in Newquay

Manager Barbara May says producers want to cast the net wider to find their next big star: "There's no way of knowing exactly how many people will turn up but working in Cornwall and knowing exactly how many people are enthusiastic about singing and live music we are preparing ourselves for an absolute onslaught.

The audition will take place on Sunday 30th March between 10am and 3pm.

Producers are asking people to simply turn up and enter, with no advanced booking required.

The X Factor's mobile auditions will visit more venues across the UK over the next few months.

Barbara added:  "Historically we've had a lot of success from people in the westcountry and they understand it's a long way to go to the Cardiff or London auditions on the off chance that you might be successful. So, they're bringing the auditions to Cornwall for the first time to give people the opportunity on their own territory to have a go.

"We have live music here every Friday night, so we know what a great music scene Cornwall has. There are some really talented people out there so I'm confident we will see someone go through to the live shows."
