The N-Dubz star spent the day at the dentist to fix problem.

Tulisa Contostavlos is due to resume rehearsals for The X Factor after being struck down with agonising toothache.

The N-Dubz star was apparently forced to cancel a promotional outing for her new perfume The Female Boss on Wednesday (2nd November) in order to visit the dentist.

But Tulisa, who got a new set of veneers in the summer, has now had the problem rectified and is due to return to work with her contestants.

"Tulisa was in so much pain she couldn’t go to work. But no dodgy tooth is going to keep her away today," a source told the Daily Mirror.

"She'd never want to miss the important stages – and she wouldn't sit out an entire weekend of live shows. She’ll be there on Saturday if she has to be wheeled out."

Tulisa's tooth woes come just a week after fellow judge Kelly Rowland was unable to attend the live shows due to illness.

The X Factor airs on ITV 1 on Saturday (5th November).
