Tulisa Contostavlos

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has said he reckons N-Dubz singer Tulisa Contostvalos is The X Factor's best judge! Louis, who was in Wales this week for the latest round of auditions in Cardiff, also said he felt new Xtra Factor presenters Caroline Flack and Olly Murs were doing well on the show.

Louis finished in third place on last year's show with One Direction, but the group were quickly snapped up by Simon Cowell's record label and plan to release their debut single later this year.

Louis was in Cardiff with us on Wednesday at the latest X Factor auditions on a secret mission - but he still had time to watch the show, remarking how "weird" it was having been through the process last year.

"Must say Caroline Flack and Olly Murs work so well together great vibe! Having a good laugh today!" Louis said. "Had such an amazing day at the x factor!! Great to see everyone what a laugh! God I miss that show."

Louis added: "Actually thought Tulisa was the best judge today! Doing a great job!"

The group are expected to return to the show later this year to perform new material from their debut album, expected in November.
