Tulisa On The X Factor Guest Judge Mel B: "She's A Tough Cookie Like Me"

16 August 2012, 16:43

The 'Young' singer says she enjoyed working with The Spice Girls star on the new series of The X Factor.

Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed that Mel B was her favourite guest judge on the new series of The X Factor.

The former N-Dubz star is returning to the judging panel for a second year, re-joining Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh, as well as new judge Nicole Scherzinger.

During the audition stages in the new series, viewers will see a series of guest judges, including The Spice Girl and Rita Ora, because Nicole was a late appointment.

Speaking at the press conference to launch The X Factor in London today (16th August), Tulisa said Mel B was the guest judge she felt she had the most in common with.

"The person who reminds me a bit of myself, and in that sense I really get along with, is Mel B," she told reporters.

"She's a real tough cookie just like me, I find it hard to be really cut-throat with people so when you have someone like Mel around it's great because she just says it exactly how it is and doesn't cut any corners."

The new series of The X Factor begins on Saturday (18th August).
