X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos held a naked pool party at judges' houses this week... but the acts weren't invited!
The 24-year-old flew the singers in her category out to the Caribbean, enjoying an all night party at the Jade Mountain Hotel in St Lucia.
“Everyone got absolutely hammered," Tulisa explained. "I got the whole crew to jump in the sea, even the producers."
She claimed: “My judge’s houses are renowned for being the best. So the pressure was on this year to yet again have the best.
“Nicole Sherzinger was in Dubai and Louis Walsh was in Las Vegas so it was like: ‘OK, I’ve got some competition here. I’ve got to raise the stakes.’
“As long as I’m a judge on this show, I will always be the one to beat.”
However the acts weren't invited to join in the fun.
A source told the Daily Star today: “She basically said this wasn’t a holiday for them.”
After some of last year’s backstage bustups and shenanigans, which ended up with Frankie Cocozza being booted out of the show, Tulisa has vowed to take a tough approach to mentoring.
She warned the potential stars: “They need to have the right attitude. You could have the most talented person standing up there but you see someone who’s got a bad attitude, they’re just gonna go within the early weeks.”
However being on Tulisa’s team won’t be a case of all work, no play.
In an interview with The Sun recently, Tulisa said: “I make space for playtime. You saw me taking acts out clubbing last year on days when they didn’t have work the next day.
“I like my acts to enjoy the process. It’s not meant to be this gruelling military operation.”
The X Factor's judges' houses will air later this month on ITV1.
