XFactor 2012 judges: Tulisa says she'll never quit the show

Tulisa (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Tulisa has vowed never to quit the show.

The N-Dubz star insisted she had no plans to leave, suggesting she would have to be fired if bosses wanted her replaced!

Speaking to the Metro newspaper, Tulisa admitted she had plenty to thank The X Factor for.

"At the end of the day I got to where I am as a solo artist with The X Factor," she told the tabloid.

"I'm not saying my music wasn't good enough - I still believe 'Young' would have gone to number one - but the way that I have been blown out of proportion is fully down to The X Factor and I am grateful for that and I would never bite the hand that feeds you."

Louis Walsh recently backed Tulisa to stay on the show, in favour of rumoured replacement Cheryl Cole.

“She works hard; she’s honest. I did say she’s a chav in a tracksuit, but she’s a good chav in a good tracksuit,” he said. “I’m always getting ready to defend her. We bonded from day one. I was dreading meeting her. I thought she was going to be a right little knacker. You know, a real toughie.”


The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday on ITV1 and ITV1HD, with the final five acts sing two tracks each with Abba and Motown themes.

Sunday's results show will see one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna, Tulisa and Bruno Mars.
