X Factor 2012 judges form new mixed sex groups at bootcamp

X Factor 2012 panel

The X Factor judges have been busy forming groups at bootcamp again, but this time there's a bit of a twist.

It's no surprise to hear that the groups category is still in need of a boost, and it's even less surprising to hear that the judges have taken it on themselves to form some new acts.

Past groups formed at bootcamp have included One Direction and Little Mix, who made history when they became the first group to win the show last year.

This year the panel were at it again when wannabes traveled to Liverpool for the four day long bootcamp session, as 200 wannabes were whittled down to 32.

As often happens, some of the rejected soloists were put into groups, but this year the judges have tried to create some new mixed sex groups.

And the pressure was on as they were given just a few hours to get to know one another and rehearse, before performing to huge crowds at the Echo Arena in the city.

But will they follow in the footsteps of Little Mix?
