Scores of people waited nervously in the foyer of the Regent Theatre, eagerly waiting for their time to shine in front of the judges.

The auditions took place from 12pm to 4pm, with each act getting the opportunity to showcase their talents for a chance to star on the show.

A few guitar cases could be spotted amongst the crowd as well as a few theatre groups and dance acts.

But there was a general veil of secrecy over the auditions, the makers of the show now wanting to give the game away on who would be making the cut.
