X Factor judge Tulisa is reportedly unhappy over rumours that Cheryl Cole could return to the series next year.
It was claimed this week that Cheryl and Dannii Minogue could be back on The X Factor next year.
It's said that the 2013 series - the tenth run of the show - could be its last.
"Simon has hit the roof over disastrous ratings, with The X Factor losing over a million viewers to Strictly, and he's putting the blame on the loss of the girls, claiming It's never been the same since [tag]Cheryl Cole[/tag] and [tag]Dannii Minogue[/tag] went," a source told Closer magazine.
"Simon thinks only Dannii and Cheryl can save the show," the source continued. "He's contacted them to ask if they would be interested in coming back next year because he worries [tag]Tulisa Contostavlos[/tag] has lot her edginess. He likes [tag]Nicole Scherzinger[/tag], but she'll only do one series."
However, Tulisa is said to be unhappy over the rumours that she'll be removed from the panel to make way for either Cheryl or Dannii.
And after getting the axe from the X Factor USA after one series, we expect Nicole isn't too happy about the same thing happening to her on the UK show too.
The source suggested: “After hearing the rumours, Tulisa is telling friends how she's done with fame and wants to go out soon.
“She says she just wants a husband and kids and wants to be a mum with no financial worries.”
