More details have been revealed about The X Factor’s visit to Norwich next week.

As previously reported, this year the ITV1 superstar search is taking a mobile audition van to towns and cities that The X Factor arena auditions tour does not reach – and the van will visit Norwich on Wednesday, May 9.

An X-Factor spokesman has now confirmed that the van will be in Norwich from 10.30am until 5pm on Wednesday.

Where the van will be in the city is still being finalised and details should be announced early next week.

The spokesman said that people can just turn up on the day and that people do not need to register in advance.

The auditions will be in front of members of the show’s production team.

People must be 16 or over to audition, and this year people can enter whether they are an amateur artist, have had a management deal in the past, or have one now.

Acts can also apply via Facebook until May 8 at www.facebook.com/ TheXFactor.
