PICTURES! Pop Idol's Hayley Evetts auditions for The X Factor 2012

Hayley Evetts

Pop Idol's Hayley Evetts is seen auditioning for The X Factor 2012 on this weekend's final set of auditions.

According to the Daily Star recently, the 36-year-old has made it through to bootcamp after impressing the judges at her audition earlier this year.

Hayley had tried to break out in some of the early reality shows, including Pop Idol and Popstars.

The singer made it as far as the final five of Pop Idol in 2001, along with stars including Will Young, Gareth Gates and Darius Danesh.

Despite going on to some success in musical theatre - including the leading role of Sandy in Grease in the West End - this year has seen Hayley returned for another attempt at chart success.

And if these pictures of Hayley's audition are anything to go by, her audition is set to be an emotional one.

We see Take That star Gary Barlow join Hayley on stage to comfort her during the high stakes performance.

Other stars back this year include Jade Richards and [tag]Melanie McCabe[/tag], who both narrowly missed out on the live shows last year.

Sian Phillips, Joe Cox and [tag]Carolynne Poole[/tag] are also making comebacks.

In 2008, Alexandra Burke returned after being axed by Louis Walsh in 2005 and went on to win the show on her second attempt.

The X Factor 2012 airs on ITV1 from Saturday and Sunday night at 8:10PM and 8PM respectively. The Xtra Factor follows straight after on ITV2.
