With Cheryl Cole still absent, the Mancunian candidates (did you see what we did there?) have one last chance to impress Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and guest judge Nicole Scherzinger in the final audition show before boot camp begins next week. The judges have already spotted some star potential this year, including 16-year-old Cher Lloyd, Zimbabwean Gamu Nhengu, our very own Mary Byrne, and Liam Payne, who made it into the last 24 in 2008, and they will be on the lookout for one final batch of new talent in Manchester to put through to the next stage of the contest. Dermot O'Leary hosts, by hugging people a lot - when he's not cocking his head to one side, mopping up sobs, or trying to endure Konnie Huq. Speaking of which, the Xtraneous Factor follows on TV3.
