Tulisa Contostavlos addresses X Factor speculation

Share article:

Tulisa Contostavlos has addressed speculation she may return to "The X Factor" - admitting she hasn't held talks about one of the vacant judging panel spots.

The 30-year-old singer, who was a panellist on the ITV show from 2011 to 2012, has been linked with a return to the programme recently after showbiz power couple Robbie Williams and Ayda Field announced their decision to quit the show as judges, but she is yet to speak to show boss Simon Cowell.

Quizzed on whether an "X Factor" return could be on the cards, she said: "I haven't spoken to them. There haven't been any conversations about it."

But Tulisa - who shot to fame with successful hip hop group N-Dubz in the Noughties - admits she "loved doing the show" and is "eternally grateful" to the programme for putting her on a bigger platform.

She said: "Of course, "X Factor" was such a life changing thing for me. It really put me on a platform that I'm eternally grateful for.

"I love the show, I loved doing the show. It's an incredible process being part of changing people's lives.

"Being a part of that even, I get to look at Little Mix now and I get to be part of that."

Tulisa tasted success on "The X Factor" when her act Little Mix, who she used to refer to as her "little muffins", won the competition in her debut year as a judge.

And the "Young" hitmaker believes the girl group were always destined to do well because they have so much talent.

Speaking on "Lorraine", she added: "You need the talent though and that's what they had.

"The mixture was there and you just had to whip it up into the perfect muffin."

Last June, Tulisa offered words of advice to Ayda just days before it was confirmed she would be a judge on last year's "X Factor".

She said: "I think the hardest part of the show, it's logical to anyone, it does become more so about you than the show when you're a judge. In terms of the invasion of privacy.

"The important thing is to always keep your eye on the ball. Someone's life is in your hands in terms of an artist on the stage.

"What you do is going to affect their career for the rest of their life, so always keep your eye on the ball. That's the hardest."
