The 'Young' singer says the two London-based singers have a lot in common with each other.

Tulisa Contostavlos has described The X Factor guest judge Rita Ora as "great" and says she and the 'R.I.P.' singer have been getting on well together.

Rita joined returned judges Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa as a guest panelist yesterday (28th May) for The X Factor live auditions at London's O2 Arena, following the exit of 2011 judge Kelly Rowland from the show. 

"Really fun day, really enjoying myself on the panel," Tulisa revealed to The X Factor on Monday. "I think Rita is great.

"[I'm] getting on really well with Rita," the 'Young' singer explained. "She's a London girl so it was inevitable." 

'How We Do (Party)' singer Rita is back again for a second round of auditions today (29th May), before she heads off to support Coldplay on their UK tour in Coventry this evening. 

Rita tweeted: "Today surrounded by the talented @officialtulisa @gbarlowofficial & the 1 & only Louis Walsh thanks 4 makin me feel so welcome!" 

Last week saw both Geri Halliwell and Leona Lewis take turns in the vacant judging panel seat for the show's live auditions, while it was announced earlier today that Nicole Scherzinger will be joining the panel as a guest judge tomorrow (30th May).
