Here's a full list of the contestants in the Let It Shine Top 40 who are into the next round.

Take That's Gary Barlow, Spandau Ballet singer Martin Kemp and former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue take up a role on the judging panel for Let It Shine.

The show is on the hunt for five guys to perform in a new stage show based on the music of Take That.

The trio of judges were joined by guest panellist, West End singer and star of Glee Amber Riley for the first stage of the competition.

A number of auditionees performed for the four piece. They all sang, some danced and others played instruments. But have they got what it takes to get through to the next round, where the lucky ones will get to perform in groups alongside hugely popular music acts?

After the acts had performed it was a nervous wait as they see the 'Let It Shine starway' light up.

Each judge will input a score of 1-5 for the performance, with each mark corresponding to a star. The contestants needed 15 stars or more out of 20 to make it through.

After that, a dance assessment split the Top 40 hopefuls going through to the next round from the others who have become 'reserves'.

Here's a rundown of the contestants in the Let It Shine Top 40...
