Do you think you have got what it takes to follow in the footsteps of James Arthur, One Direction or Leona Lewis?

The X Factor will be holding mobile auditions at The Ridings shopping centre on Thursday.

Anyone aged over 16 can audition between 10am and 3pm.

And there will be an extra slot for people in full time education from 3pm to 4.30pm.

Victoria Clapham, Marketing Manager at The Ridings, said: “We know Wakefield is full of very talented individuals so are really excited that the X Factor Mobile Auditions will be stopping off at The Ridings, giving local performers the opportunity to shine.”

The auditions will form part of next series of Simon Cowell’s talent show and will be shown on ITV later this year.
