The reality show judge will take friends on an expensive trip to celebrate Little Mix's win on the ITV1 show.

Tulisa Contostavlos is reportedly planning to celebrate her first year on The X Factor judging panel by taking friends on an all-expenses paid trip to the Caribbean.

The N-Dubz singer became this year's winning judge on the ITV show last Sunday (11th December) when her girl band Little Mix took home The X Factor 2011 crown after beating solo act Marcus Collins.

"Tulisa has had hardly any time to see her friends since she's been on the show," a source told The Sun this week.

"All of her time has been spent with her acts or preparing for the next programme," they claim. "This is her first time off in months and she can't wait to catch up with everyone properly".

The 'I Need You' singer will allegedly fly first-class on Atlantic Airlines, and is widely reported to potentially double her earnings on The X Factor if she returns for the 2012 series.

Since Little Mix's win last weekend Tulisa has expressed regret at not being qualified to manage the group full-time but has promised to remain a mentor to the four-piece band while they begin their music career.
