One local teenager will be thrust into the national limelight this week as he bids to become a part of the next big thing during the inaugural run of X Factor: The Band.

Talented singer-songwriter, Reece Wiltshire-Fessey (pictured), who lived in Guilsfield but now resides in Llansantffraid, will be a part of the show’s grand debut which aims to find the next One Direction or Little Mix.

The 19-year-old will be performing in front of show boss Simon Cowell and judge Nicole Scherzinger along with a number of other hopefuls wanting to become overnight sensations.

The show is a spin-off from The X Factor and will run all week into the finals at the weekend when a boy band and/or girl band will be formed with a healthy record deal from Cowell.

The show will be hosted by Dermot O’Leary and an insider said this week: “Simon means business and wants no one wasting his time. He’s looking for the band of 2020 and for a group to follow in the footsteps of One Direction and Little Mix.” 

Auditions have been taking place at Simon’s record label, Syco, in front of a host of industry professionals.

“This isn't a TV audition, it's the biggest record label meeting the prospective artists. Simon and Nicole aren’t putting just anybody through. These are undoubtedly the toughest auditions in years.”

The show will kick off tonight (Monday), at 8.30pm on ITV, and consists of four episodes.

It will continue on Wednesday and Friday at the same time before the live final goes out on Sunday, December 15, from 8.10pm.
