PICTURES! First look at X Factor 2016 bootcamp and the 'wall of songs'

It’s time for the X Factor 2016 Boot Camp this weekend with a bumper long special episode.

But that's not before some last minute auditions.

This weekend will see the usual X Factor double bill as the final few acts sing for the judges, hoping to make it through to the next stage.

And once the very last hopeful has got their yes or no, bootcamp begins!

This year around 100 contestants made it through in the various categories, including a living doll, a Finish princess and a couple who got engaged during their audition.

In bootcamp, the remaining contestants will be put through their paces, having to perform once again for the judges in a series of dancing and singing challenges.

There will be some brutal cuts as the acts are reduced to just a handful in each of the four categories.

Those that impress Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh will survive the cull and earn a coveted place at next week’s Six Chair Challenge and be one step closer to being crowned The X Factor 2016 winner.

As always, Dermot O’Leary, will be on hand to guide viewers through all the Boot Camp action as well as providing hopefuls with those much-needed ‘Dermot hugs’

The X Factor 2016 airs at 8PM on ITV this Saturday night while the bumper bootcamp show begins at the earlier time of 7:30PM on ITV.
