Tulisa admits she would date an X Factor contestant!

Tulisa (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Tulisa has said she's have no problem dating a contestant from the show, jut not while the programme is on air!

The N-Dubz star, who is currently single again after splitting with 'Skins' star boyfriend Jack O'Connell, said she was just after chemistry.

“If I find someone who’s a good guy that I get along with, I don’t really care what he does, and that goes for anything," she told The Sun newspaper this morning. “I don’t care if he works in McDonald’s. The one is the one.”

However the singer fears her hectic work schedule will prevent her from forming a long term relationship any time soon.

She said: “I’m out and about a lot and I meet loads of people but it’s hard to meet someone.

“If I can’t find it at events where I’m surrounded by people similar to me, in the same industry, I doubt I’m gonna find it in a contestant.”

But if Tulisa did happen to strike up a romance, she'd wait until the show as over before going any further.

“I’d never date someone I’m mentoring, or any contestant while the show is on," she told the newspaper. “But if I met a contestant six months down the line that was not in my category, who I just happened to find chemistry with... I’d date anyone who I got along with or who I found date-worthy. Like I said, it doesn’t matter what their job is.”
