X Factor 2012: Tulisa says Cheryl Cole return would be "amazing"

Tulisa (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Tulisa has backed a possible return by Cheryl Cole, even if it could cost her a spot on the panel!

It was reported this morning that X Factor boss Simon Cowell was keen to get Cheryl back on the show next year, inviting her for talks at his LA mansion.

Speaking on the Alan Carr show earlier in the year, Cheryl admitted she wouldn’t say “never” to coming back to The X Factor, saying of her relationship with Simon: “We’re ‘frenemies’. I’ve spoken to him many times.”

A source told The Sun this morning: “He’s desperate to get Cheryl back on X Factor UK because it’s lost its way.

“The money on the table would be a fortune — at least double what she got last time. She could have what she wanted.”

Speaking on This Morning, Tulisa said: “I don’t know anything about it, but I think that would be amazing.

" Obviously I love Cheryl to bits but I don’t know anything about that.”

Meanwhile, Tulisa has admitted she's finding it strange not having any acts left to mentor.

The N-Dubz star won the show last year with Little Mix, but thanks to some unfortunately timed illnesses this eyar, has been the first judge to lose their three contestants.

"It would never be nice because if I could have my girls back I would, but I’ve just got to kind of get on with it. It’s a new experience," she said. “Obviously last year I’ve never not had any acts because I’ve only been on it for two years now. It feels completely different but you’ve just got to get on with it.”
