The X Factor 2012 bootcamp kicks off tonight, and it's all go from the minute the hopefuls arrive in Liverpool.

Gary Barlow and his fellow judges are seen axing acts before they've even performed, but there's no chance for those that remain to breathe a sigh of relief .

They're thrown into the thick of it with their first challenge: A group performance.

It goes well for some, with [tag]Ella Henderson[/tag], [tag]Melanie McCabe[/tag] and [tag]Jade Ellis[/tag] all wowing the judges.

But there's some shocking auditions too, with favourite [tag]Jahmene Douglas[/tag] disappointing the panel after forgetting the lyrics.

Meanwhile [tag]Lucy Spraggan[/tag] struggles without her guitar and her own songs, while [tag]Robbie Hance[/tag] is seen storming off stage!

The X Factor 2012 bootcamp starts tonight at 8:10PM on ITV1.
