George Gerasimou brands Tulisa a "scumbag" and "dog" in shocking audition

George Gerasimou X Factor 2011

The X Factor is back on our screens tomorrow night and it returns with one of the most shocking X Factor auditions to date, with George Gerasimou branding Tulisa a "scumbag" and a "dog" in a rant against the N-Dubz star. During the tense scene, Kelly Rowland gets to her feet in support of Tulisa as security escort the hopeful from the stage.

As auditions kick off in London on tomorrow night's opening episode, show host Dermot O'Leary introduces North London singer George Gerasimou, who previously auditioned for the show in 2009 as part of trio Triple Trouble. Their try out didn't go too well, with George slamming the microphone down on the stage after being given a no.

"I've matured over the past two years and I'm back to clear my name," George told the panel.


But after his outburst, Gary Barlow mocks: "When something matures it's usually good, like cheese or fine wine. You've matured like a bad curry, mate."

The remark makes George even more irate, telling the panel: "Now it's time for my opinion," he warns before launching into a rant against Tulisa, new judge on this year's show.

Branding her a "scumbag", George swears at the N-Dubz star for replacing Cheryl, but Tulisa hits back: "You've embarrassed yourself in front of the entire nation."

As the row intensifies, security step in to remove him from the stage, but not before he gives a middle finger to the panel, causing an angry Kelly Rowland to get off out of her seat.

Backstage and branding Tulisa a "dog," even host Dermot O'Leary gets involved: "Watch your mouth. Don't call girls that," he severely warns him.

What follows is possibly the longest swear-word bleep on UK telly, before security finally chucks him out of London's O2 Arena.

You don't want to miss this audition when it airs tomorrow from 8PM when The X Factor returns to ITV1.
