Man proposes to girlfriend at X Factor audtions in Manchester

The X Factor auditions in Manchester this week (June16) took a different turn when a man who auditioned with his girlfriend stunned the judges - Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinnger, Sharon Orsbourne and Louis Walsh - by proposing after their performance.

After their audition, the man decided to pop the question to his unsuspecting girlfriend - and much to the surprise of the panel and the crowd.

"They told the judges they’ve only been together about six months but they moved in together after a few weeks," a source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

"It was all quite out of the blue at The X Factor, the man ended up proposing in front of the cameras and thankfully his girlfriend said yes."

Hopefuls on this year's (16) series are going all out to impress the judges in the hope of making it through to the next stage of the ITV talent show.
