X Factor's Tulisa wants to be bigger than Cheryl Cole with music, book and fashion deals!

Tulisa Contostavlos (X Factor)

X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos is hoping to become the 'next Cheryl Cole', with plans for book, music and fashion deals.

The N-Dubz star, who recently split from her bandmate boyfriend Fazer, is also set to pocket £1 million for the new series of The X Factor this year.

At just 23 years old, Tulisa has also signed a three book deal, which will see her publish an autobiography in the autumn.

She’s also being chased by US companies, with Def Jam records apparently looking to sign the now solo singer.

The People quote one of Tulisa's advisors telling her: “If it all goes to plan you’ll be worth $6million in 18 months.”

A source told the tabloid: “Tulisa is aware that record label Def Jam are keen on launching her solo career. She is ­working to become a multi-media brand. There are talks of a clothing brand, another perfume, a beauty range and even a calendar.

“She is working along the same lines as Cheryl Cole but much bigger.”
