X Factor 2016: Boot camp welcome party gets raunchy

The X Factor 2016 bootcamp kicks off this weekend and rumour as it things got a bit raunchy behind the scenes.

This year once again the acts were given the traditional boot camp welcome party that over the years has seen all sorts of antics.

And it sounds as though this year's celebrations may have got a little naughty as the cameras filmed everything.

Well, almost everything, The X Factor hasn't turned into Love Island quite yet...

“Some contestants went wild at bootcamp treating it more like an 18-30s holiday," a source told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper at the weekend. "There were wild late night parties with contestants snogging and sleeping together."

The insider alleged: “One girl in particular was all over the boys and slept with at least three different people.

“No drinking was allowed before 9pm but after that people were getting drunk.”

However a show spokesperson played down the claims amid accusations that producers were encouraging acts to play up to the cameras.

They said: “A welcome party was thrown for contestants where anyone over 18 was allowed two drinks.

“No one was ever encouraged to misbehave and all acts are auditioned on the merit of their performances and nothing else.”

Despite the warm welcome, X Factor boss Simon Cowell makes it clear in this weekend's show that boot camp is where the show gets serious.

He says: "I don't care how little time you've had to prepare... guess what's going to happen tomorrow? Goodbye."

The X Factor 2016's final auditions air this Saturday at 8PM and the show continues with a bumper bootcamp episode on Sunday night from the earlier time of 7:30PM.
