Mike Jinks, head of arts at the college, said: "We will be giving them some home truths. This is not just about saying, 'go on X Factor and you will be famous'. We expect them to work hard.

"We expect them to understand that most people who go on X Factor put a lot of hard work and preparation into it."

"What they'll get is a lot of really useful transferable skills," he added. "Whether they develop the confidence to take on an audition or take on a job interview, I don't see much difference between the skills that you need."
