MUSICAL MP Will Quince could be set to fulfill his Britain's Got Talent bet tomorrow when open auditions come to Colchester.

Mr Quince agreed to audition for the popular ITV show in a Twitter wager if £1,000 was raised to be split between three charities.

Now he plans to make good on his promise when open auditions come to Firstsite tomorrow.

The operatic Tory MP said: "I really didn't expect it all to happen so soon but I had planned to come back to Colchester from London that night anyway, so I'm planning to be there.

"It's the Finance Bill which is listed so I'm expecting an 8pm finish and it usually takes two hours to get from there back to Colchester so I'm certainly against the clock."

Mr Quince hopes to arrive at Firstsite by 10pm, 30 minutes before the auditions close.

He added: "I still don't really know what I will sing but I have got a few tunes in the repertoire."

The auditions opens at 5pm for children's performances.

Adults may audition between 6pm and 10.30pm.

Last year the auditions were held at The Bull pub, in Crouch Street, where eventual semi-finalists Ana and Fia Almanda were originally spotted.

There is no need to register and performers can turn up on the day.

Singers will be able to perform to a backing track.
