X Factor 2012: Tulisa 'annoyed' at Nicole 'hogging the limelight'

Nicole Scherzinger (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has reportedly been put out by new judge Nicole Scherzinger.

According to the Daily Mail this weekend, the N-Dubz star "can't stand" her rival judge, former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole.

The newspaper claims that Tulisa is annoyed that the show's first two audition shows have apparently edited her out in favour of Nicole.

A source told the paper: "Nicole and Tulisa are already rubbing each other up the wrong way."

The supposed insider added: "Tulisa thinks Nicole hogs the limelight, singing and getting to her feet during auditions. It really aggravates Tulisa.

"And Nicole fawns over Gary Barlow, getting really touchy-feely with him at every opportunity."

We're not too sure why Tulisa would be too annoyed just yet, with Nicole barely being shown on Saturday's latest show as a range of guest judges replaced her.

And frankly we much preferred it that way

Rivalries between the female judges on The X Factor is now seemingly par for the course, and it's something that Tulisa admitted she was prepared to read about before the show's launch.

But she insisted that any such stories were "rubbish", saying that both she and Nicole "loved" one another.
