Nicole Scherzinger And Tulisa Contostavlos Tease The X Factor UK Returns - Audio

The two panelists talk to Capital FM about whether they will be back on the ITV show in 2013.

Tulisa Contostavlos and Nicole Scherzinger have both said they would potentially be open to returning to The X Factor UK for this year's series.

Both judges served on the panel for last year's series of the ITV talent show, with 2012 being Nicole's first year as a judge, and have opened up about returning for the 2013 series exclusively to Capital FM.

"Definitely, you know, if they asked me to come back then I'm back," Tulisa told Capital this week. "Nobody finds out anything until only a couple of months beforehand.

"It was the same the first year and it was the same on my second year so it's not going to change this year."

New addition Nicole, who is currently promoting her new single 'Boomerang', admits she would "flirt" with the idea if asked back for a second year on the show's judging panel.

"I don't know! We haven't had the conversation yet but I would tickle it, possibly," Nicole revealed. "I would flirt with the conversation.

"But I had an amazing time last year so we'll have to see," she added.

Tulisa is currently preparing to head out on the road to support Ne-Yo on his upcoming UK arena tour, which kicks off at the Newcastle Metro Arena on 6th March.
