He has claims to fame on all manner of shows!

| Updated:

X Factor wannabe Amrick Channa is got tongue wagging as he auditioned on tonight’s show but he’s not like the other hopefuls wanting a music career.

TV obsessive Amrick has already been on several other reality shows including Come Dine With Me, The Voice and Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

It’s also been said that Amrick charges between £600 and £2000 to perform his dance track and also offers personal appearances.

On website Entertainers Worldwide, Amrick brands himself a “powerhouse diva vocalist” and revealed he is “filming shows for the BBC and ITV in 2017”.

Amrick also said he’s performed in clubs all around the world.

Back in 2013 Amrick appeared on cooking show Come Dine With Me and he of course showcased his musical talents on the show.

During his dinner party night Amrick performed a song in a bid to bag first place on the show.

Despite his efforts Amrick came third out of five.

One year later, in 2014, Amrick continued to search for fame as he appeared on singing competition The Voice.

He performed club track A Deeper Love to try and win over judges Kyle Minogue, Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson and will.i.am and get them to turn their chairs around.

But he failed to win them over with will.i.am and Ricky comparing his voice to a “grandmother’s”.

Amrick has also taken part in a promotional campaign for Sainsbury’s and bragged he’s the “the face” of the supermarket chain.

Last year Amrick also made an appearance on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

As part of the show’s ad break competition Amrick managed to bag £500 alongside his pal Karen from his own home.

The brand new series hit our screens a fortnight ago for its 14th series.

The judging panel has remained the same as last year because show boss Simon said the “chemistry was perfect”.

But there have been a few changes to the show in a bid to boost ratings.

It has been reported that the normal results show that usually takes place on Sundays have been axed.

“Simon loves making changes to the show’s format to keep it fresh, so he’s been pitching to producers that the show should ditch the traditional Sunday night format, which is always 15 minutes recapping the previous night’s show, a guest performer, a sing off and an elimination,” a source told The Sun.

They added: “He wants the show to mix things up – have guest performers on Saturday’s show, kick out acts on both nights of the weekend…It’ll be must-see TV.

“The shows will be tighter, less predictable for viewers and acts will perform across the weekend.”

Viewers have also spotted that there has been a reduction in “joke acts” on this year’s series.

Auditions continue tonight at 8pm on ITV.
