Fiona Weir from Warner Bros. has told CBBC Newsroundopens in new window:

We really didn't have a particular look in mind and saw many fabulous girls from all points of the UK and Ireland.

We were really amazed at the response and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who gave up their Saturday.

Even though we had many thousands more than anticipated, we were determined to see everyone who came along.
