Corrie star to audition for Little Mix's new talent show The Search

A Coronation Street star is set to audition for Little Mix’s new talent show tonight.

Actor Elliott, who has also appeared in Hollyoaks, is just one of many singers hoping to impress the band on Little Mix: The Search.

During tonight’s audition process, the male singers will battle it out for a chance to be in a boy band.

Speaking ahead of his audition, Elliott, who played an extra in the soaps, explained that he had wanted to be an actor since he was 15 years old.

‘I have done Coronation Street and I have done Hollyoaks,’ he said.

‘In Coronation Street, I got a lot of air time.’

In their new BBC talent show, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson all search for the next big thing.

After becoming the first band to win The X Factor in 2011 and so far securing four UK number one singles, the girls will be mentoring groups and hand-selected from applicants.

The Search last year was the source of much controversy after Simon Cowell rush-released X-Factor: The Band, which housed a similar concept, after the initial announcement.

Previously speaking to Metro.co.uk, band member Jade admitted that the girls were finding it difficult to mentor contestants for the show during lockdown.

‘The contestants have been incredible, they’ve all got like WhatsApp groups going and checking in on each other, rehearsing over Zoom,’ the Touch hitmaker said.

‘It’s been really interesting. Because we’ve had to learn to do that ourselves, in terms of getting along and seeing the bigger picture, it’s making groups and seeing the energy. It’s quite hard getting the groups to gel.’

Little Mix: The Search airs tonight at 7pm on BBC One.
