Tulisa returns to The X Factor 2014 this weekend as the show moves to its judges' houses stage.

The former judge joins Louis Walsh and his boys in Bermuda, and she's over the moon to have been invited back.

The singer has had a rough twelve months with two court trials that played out in the public eye.

"I owe so much to X Factor. I feel like I’m home. Everyone has my back," she said this week. “I lost touch with a lot of my friends, people I’ve known for years, when things were at their worst."

“They disassociated themselves from me and that really hurt.

“This industry is extremely cut-throat and people just cut you off like that. It’s good to know my X Factor family have not disowned me.”

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Tulisa went on: “Louis was one of the people that stuck by me all the way. He’s a true friend. He openly supported me, not caring at the time what people thought.

“I’d really like to thank the whole of X Factor, including Simon Cowell, for being so supportive of me.”

The X Factor airs this Friday, Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
