Tulisa Contostavlos To Be Axed From The X Factor UK Panel?

22 February 2013, 10:27

The 'Young' star is allegedly set to be dropped from the show's judging line-up for this year's series.

Tulisa Contostavlos is rumoured to be facing the axe on The X Factor UK this year after sources said the 'Young' singer has "had a good run" on the ITV show.

The 'Live It Up' star is reportedly set to be dropped from the judging panel line-up by The X Factor boss Simon Cowell, with rumours suggesting the show's flagging ratings and Tulisa's own solo career have contributed to the decision.

"Quite apart from her performance on last year's show, you can't have a singer whose album only reached No.35 in the charts sitting in judgement on other singers," a source close to the show told The Sun this week. "Tulisa's been on the panel for two years.

"She had a good run, but all good things come to an end."

"Simon has always liked to change things every year and Tulisa is going to pay the price for that," another source told The Mirror. "She wasn't as committed last year as when she won with Little Mix in 2011 and someone has to exit to freshen the series up."

Despite the speculation surrounding this year's panel, a spokesperson told the paper "no formal decisions" have been made about this year's line-up, and a spokesperson for the N-Dubz star declined to comment on the rumours.

Tulisa Contostavlos is set to support Ne-Yo on tour beginning at the Newcastle Metro Arena on 6th March.
