00:18 GMT, 23 September 2012
They got a shock when a third of them got axed before having the chance to sing, so X Factor hopefuls had added pressure for their first bootcamp audition.
One wannabe star seems like she let the pressure get to her and went to the extreme of sneaking whiskey into the arena to calm her nerves before performing.
Collagen Westwood, who showed up on stage wearing a completely see-through top, decided that having a little tipple was the best way to warm up her vocal chords.

Before she hit the stage with the other two contestants in her group, Britt Love and Diedra Lawlor, the brunette singer admitted that she'd been drinking alcohol in preparation for her performance, despite the disapproval of the other two.
'I’m not going to lie; I’ve had like one or two whiskeys which I have smuggled in,' she told the cameras.

Britt, who was put through to the next stage by the judges, took offence to her co-star's shoddy work ethic:
'I’m really annoyed because she’s
really quite drunk and I can smell it on her, it’s not fair on me and my other
member. You know some people are here just to be on TV.'

Gary Barlow was thoroughly unimpressed with the Collagen:
'I have to say that was awful, absolutely awful, that’s the worst audition of the day,' he said.
After failing to be put through after the judges called her out on her daytime drinking, the singer lost it backstage:
'Gary isn’t the holy grail of singing, I think Gary is just a bit mean anyway, I thought that from the beginning, I never really liked him, he was a bit horrible', she ranted.

She then directed a tweet at ITV, accusing them of bad editing:
'@ITV1 nothing sour hear apart from your fake editing and ratings ;)' (sic)

time I have just lost a whole lot more than everyone else. I suppose
self-destruction was the key of today.'
