One of the UK's biggest talent shows held auditions in Llandudno on Monday.

People from all over the county and beyond made their way to the St George Hotel for Britain's Got Talent auditions in an attempt to earn a place to be seen by the shows main judge - which include Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Williams and Alesha Dixon.

This is the first time Llandudno has hosted auditions for the ITV show and Jordi Herraiz, who was part of the casting team, said it had been a great day of auditions.

Auditions were supposed to be from 3pm until 7pm on Monday, but organisers had to rush down and set up early with people beginning to turn up for the auditions from midday.

Mr Herraiz said: "Every single year the talent is getting better and better which means the show has just been going from strength to strength.

"We are looking for absolutely anyone and everyone, we don't turn anyone away.

"The auditions were staged between 3pm and 7pm so that it was out of school hours, out of work hours, so everyone could make it.

"We have had people singing, dancing, magicians, acrobats and comedians. First and second place this year were comedians so we've had quite a few of them this year."

The auditions saw everyone from eight-year-old Jessica Graves singing and playing her guitar to 57-year-old Thelma Jakes, fresh off her semi-final performance at Wales' Got Talent, also belting out a tune for the judges.

Mrs Jakes said: "I was inspired by Wales' Got Talent to come here and audition. Making the semi-final for that gave me a boost in confidence."

Conwy's Eimedr Teasdale, 12, was also in Llandudno for the Britain's Got Talent auditions.

Eimedr said: "I'm really excited. I love dancing and performing so I'm looking forward to being able to do that in front of the judges."

The Llandudno auditions have been filmed and will now be sent to producers to have a look at. The acts they like will be moved onto the next phase of performing in front of the four Britain's Got Talent judges.
