The X Factor 2012 bootcamp airs this weekend on ITV1, and here's a sneak peek at the tears and drama from backstage!

Over 100 acts have made it through the tough judges' auditions to this point, which is set to be the most difficult bootcamp yet.

The judges will be seen setting the hopefuls various challenges over 72 hours to whittle the hopefuls down to just 24, six in each of the four categories.

Prepare for some shock exits as nerves get the better of some of the great talent.

There's plenty of tears as the decisions are revealed, as the dream ends for some but continues for others.

The X Factor airs on ITV1 on Saturday and Sunday.
