The X Factor newbie Tulisa Contostavlos may have only just got her job on the show - but she's already planning her exit! The 23-year-old N-Dubz singer told the Daily Mirror today she wanted to quit showbiz by the age of 30, and says The X Factor will probably make her want to get out even quicker!

The hip hop star joined this year's panel alongside Take That front man Gary Barlow and former Destiny's Child superstar Kelly Rowland, with the trio joining Louis Walsh who is the only returning member of the panel.

But while other judges of the show have used it as a platform for 'superfame' - with solo albums, tours, autobiographies, fashion lines, perfumes and more - Tulisa reckons she'll want to get out of the limelight quickly.

Speaking about her new fame, she says: “If anything, it will just make me want to get out sooner. I don’t want to do this for ever. It’s not the real world.

“I want enough money for my family and to go out with a bang at my peak.”

And in a rather candid interview, Tulisa also said she was "lucky" to lose her virginity at, well, 14...

“I was lucky – there were kids of 12 s******* in the toilets at break time," she reveals to the tabloid.
