ASPIRING singers and hopeful musicians have only a matter of hours to fine tune their performances before the X Factor auditions reach Warrington later on today.

The first stage of the audition process in the ITV One hit music talent show will stop off in Warrington this afternoon as part of its nationwide tour to discover the next smash-hit singer or group.

Fancy following in the footsteps of Leona Lewis, Olly Murs and One Direction and getting your hands on a record contract?

Auditions will be held in the old Thomas Cook unit in the Golden Square Shopping Centre.

The time of auditions has also been extended and will take place from 10.30am until 4.30pm.

Acts are advised to turn up early as audition slots are available on a first come, first served basis and there is no need to have applied beforehand.

Best of luck to all the hopefuls taking part today.
