Just one person showed up to the X Factor auditions in Colchester.

The auditions, which were a qualifying round in front of producers to go on to try out in front of the judges, attracted over 100 people when they took place in Colchester last year.

However, Cher Townrow was the only person to turn up to the recent event. She told The Sun: "I was walking home and saw it on the sign for the auditions."

She added that she failed to get through, saying: "At home I can sing brilliantly, but it didn't happen here."

An onlooker said that producers started to get people in off the streets, and overall about 20 people auditioned.

They said: "It looks like The X Factor has finally lost its grip on the nation.

"It was quite a depressing sight to see - to me it looked like a party with no guests."
