Little Mix: The Search viewers spotted a familiar face on the show’s launch night.
Little Mix: The Search finally kicked off on Saturday night, and one of the contestants who auditioned in front of Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall has been on TV before.
Aspiring singer and actor, Elliott, from Oldham, has appeared on Coronation Street and Hollyoaks as an extra.
Opening up about his five minutes of fame on the show, he said: “I have done Coronation Street and I have done Hollyoaks.
"In Coronation Street, I got a lot of air time.”
Elliott made it past the first stage of the auditions, however he failed to make the final boyband line-up.
The first episode went down extremely well with fans who took to Twitter to praise the girls for being ‘amazing’.
"Those girls are amazing at what they do,” wrote one viewer.
Another added: “Little Mix deserve 22 seasons of the search ! I LOVE THEM #TheSearch.”
Little Mix: The Search continues on Sunday at 7pm on BBC One.
