X Factor UK judge Tulisa has said she hopes to see Kanye West join the series this year.

Speaking about the upcoming series this week, Tulisa hinted that she'd be back along with Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow.

But she said she didn't know whether or not Kelly Rowland would be joining the trio for a second series this summer.

Instead, Tulisa suggested: "I don't know if I would get on with him, but it would be interesting to have someone like Kanye West on the show.

"Just because he's so opinionated."

The singer also thanked Simon Cowell for his support throughout her recent sex tape scandal.

The music mogul had branded the person who leaked the video as a "scumbag", and insisted that it wouldn't affect her position on The X Factor.

The N-Dubz star said: "I have read in The Sun that I am being backed by Simon Cowell, which is a great encouragement.”

Meanwhile Tulisa is now focused on the release of her debut single, Young, which is out on April 30.
