There's snogging, skinny-dipping..oh, and a bit of work...

X Factor hopefuls hid behind the trees at the show’s boot camp hotel hideaway when a late night party got wild.

‘There was skinny-dipping in the pool and drinking games,’ says Rachel Chance, 23, from Essex vocal group the Chance Sisters.

‘Everyone had a lot to drink. We weren’t skinny-dipping ourselves, but my sisters Abigail, 19, and Leah, 20, went topless.There was a lot of snogging going on, too.

‘The lights were still on at the pool and there were drinking games going on. We were still partying at 3am,’ says another of the sisters, Naomi, 25.

‘Then Simon Cowell came out and stood on the steps leading up to the hotel, shouting at everyone to go to bed because he had to get up in a couple of hours.

‘You’d never seen people hiding so quickly!’
