Here's a first look at The X Factor 2016 bootcamp which starts next weekend on ITV.

Around 100 acts will end up through to the next stage following of the final round of auditions this coming Saturday.

Once the last act sings for the judges the next stage will start straight away as Bootcamp kicks off with a bumper long episode this Sunday night on ITV.

Bootcamp was filmed at the Alexandra Palace in London with the judges and the acts earlier this year, with no live audience just like the audition stages.

In this year's 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.

Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh will judge the acts as they decide who will earn a coveted place at the Six Chair Challenge and be one step closer to being crowned The X Factor 2016 winner.

"It can or make or break you," warns Sharon to the acts, who also get to enjoy a party at the venue.

But despite the warm welcome, Simon makes it clear that bootcamp 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."

Dermot O'Leary is on hand to guide us through it all and give out those much needed Dermot hugs.

"There's an awful lot of worried people out there," Dermot tells the cameras.
